Victoria Doramus started struggling with drug and alcohol addiction in her early 20s. She ended up in rehab in 2011 and then again in 2016. She says she succumbed to cocaine and Adderall. While she learned from things from these stays in rehab she says that she hadn’t yet hit rock bottom. That would occur in late 2016.
According to analystoffinance.com, she was living in New York and was alone without any friends or family. It was Thanksgiving Day and she says she became desperate and as a result she was arrested. Victoria Doramus says she was at that point willing to do whatever it took to get off the drugs and become sober. She felt she didn’t have anything else to lose and if she didn’t really get help she was going to die. She decided to check into a facility in Austin called the Burning Tree. This rehabilitation facility takes a No-BS approach and forced her to confront her behaviors and addictions.
After seven months Victoria Doramus was released to a halfway house where she had a sponsor working with her on her recovery. She was required to do five AA meetings a week and work 30 to 40 hours. She is now in London and works with a number of addiction non-profits such as the Amy Winehouse Foundation. She also volunteers for other types of charities as well such as Best Friends Animal Society and Room to Read.
Victoria Doramus says that her dream is to open a halfway house in New York which helps people who want to attain sobriety and get their lives back together. She says she wants this halfway house to be based on the concept of the twelve steps program while not being that exact type of program itself. She is already getting the business model together and getting the funding lined up for this nonprofit. View Doramus’ career history on LinkedIn.
