Victoria Doramus is a Recovery Expert who has been very open about her personal journey to sobriety. Bouncing in and out of rehabs and destroying relationships with people she cared about (including her mother who was dying of cancer), Doramus had taken a long road to sobriety. She spent the better part of 15 years controlled by her addiction. It wasn’t until she ended up at a rehab facility in Austin, Texas called Burning Tree that she finally began to see clarity.
At this facility, in Austin, it took a strict, tough love, regime and long-term treatment for Doramus to finally make lasting progress. Doramus’ time at Burning Tree was filled with chores, group sessions, AA meetings and working through a Twelve Step process. After nearly a year at Burning Tree, Doramus transitioned to a half-way house where she worked waiting tables and saving up money to move and restart her life.

Looking back on her progress, Doramus, a consumer trends expert and creative marketer turned philanthropist, is eager to give back and help people overcome the struggle that she feels she has finally gotten the upper hand on. She dreams of starting her own halfway house in New York City inspired by the Twelve Steps used at Burning Tree but with the additions of her own variations. Doramus notes that sobriety cannot be achieved alone. She believes it takes a community of support, accountability from peers, and a strong sense of personal responsibility. Doramus says her best advice to anyone who is struggling with addiction is that “you are the only one who can change your life, and that change is possible”. Doramus’ journey was long and painful but she is proof that change is possible. Contact Doramus on Pinterest.
