From a Drug Addict to a Recovery Expert – the Story of Victoria Doramus

The topics on addiction and drug recovery attract mixed reactions from different kinds of people. Notably, most people feel addiction is a disease that needs swift attention. In line with this, successful drug recovery people have opted to share their experiences and tips on how to evade the chains of drug addiction and live a free life, without drug bondage. One such person is Victoria Doramus, who successfully recovered from addiction in 2016 at 31 years of age.

Doramus is a typical example of what most drug addicts go through. At age 15 years, she was already taking amphetamine pills daily to the point that even a bottle wasn’t satisfactory. These pills imprisoned her for the next fifteen years, at some point succumbing to cocaine and Adderall. Typically of many people who are yearning for a turning point, Victoria Doramus broke friendships, changed friends, changed states, and lived a desperate life altogether.

It wasn’t until 2011 that Victoria Doramus saw the need to visit a rehab. She was 26, and her first rehabilitation center was in Tucson AZ. However, she couldn’t recover after 45 days at the recovery facility. She was back to her “normal” life until 2016 when she rethink about rehabilitation. She tried a Connecticut facility for 60 days; then she was back for self-recovery in New York – her home. All these failed.

The turning point of Victoria’s journey was in 2017 when she flew to Austin TX for a recovery program. The center helped her build her emotional stability and changed her whole life.

Currently, Victoria Doramus is a volunteer in different organizations whose aim is to educate people on addiction and eliminate misuse of alcohol and drugs among youths (such as Amy Winehouse Foundation). She recognizes that you are the solution to your addiction disease, and you can recover no matter the depth of your addiction. Besides, recovery is continuous; you have to make the decision and start working towards your growth.

Dick DeVos Has Been A Gift To Grand Rapids, Michigan, And The United States

Dick DeVos is an American entrepreneur and businessman who also served as the CEO to Amway. He is married to Betsy DeVos who is the Secretary of Education for the United States, and together, they have done quite a bit for the state of Michigan. Dick DeVos earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration while studying at Northwood University, and he also received honorary doctorates from Central Michigan University, Northwood University, and Grove City College. He ran to serve as Michigan’s governor in 2006 but lost the race to Jennifer Granholm who was the incumbent.

 

Close to three decades ago, back in 1991, he led an effort to put a stop to a multi-purpose sports and convention arena that was going to be built just north of Grand Rapids, Michigan’s downtown area. The plan for the arena was being introduced to the public, and as soon as he heard about it, he was on the phone lobbying against it. The reason for his concern was related to his experience and what he witnessed in Detroit when the Detroit Pistons and Lions left the city after it had paid to build the Pontiac Silverdome and Palace of Auburn Hills. This happened during the 1970’s, but his memory of how detrimental it was to the city remained.

 

Instead of waiting for others to get around to doing it, he was a part of the putting together of Grand Action, which is a group of business leaders who, first, helped to put a stop to the construction of the arena but also ended up doing much more. Grand Action was responsible for the building of the DeVos Place Convention Center, Michigan State University’s medical school, the Grand Rapids City Market, and many other useful buildings in the city of Grand Rapids. Thankfully, for the city, the arena that could have had a negative effect on the city was never built.

 

Dick DeVos has done so much more for the city of Grand Rapids and for the entire state of Michigan. He was a part of the effort that led to Michigan changing into a state where workers do not have to be unionized before getting a job. His wife and himself also created the Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, which has donated over $138 million to the arts and culture sectors, health and human services, programs that build leaders, churches, and policy initiatives that aim to improve the educational system of the state and the country, at-large.

 

Dick DeVos was also the man who helped to convince Southwest to run non-stop flights out of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids. The airport now serves double of what the average airport in the United States does. He also started up an aviation charter school, which is located on the grounds of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. The West Michigan Aviation Academy started out in a small room on the airport with 60 students, or so, and now has a much larger building where it schools over 600 students.

Rocketship Education’s Computer-Based Programs

Technology is running society now days and it would be extremely hard trying to find an industry that doesn’t use some form of advanced technology. When it comes to education, computer-based programs are taking over the game because they provide the students with a more engaging environment for learning. Rocketship Education epitomizes this concept to the highest degree. Rocketship Education falls under Rocketship Public Schools, and it is a non-profit system of charter schools. Founded by Preston Smith and John Danner in 2006, this particular school was designed to provide optimum learning capabilities for children who reside in underprivileged communities.

Within this particular system, the students can learn at their own pace while being engaged in a fundamental learning experience. Rocketship Education uses a vast array of computer-based programs that are customized to the students who are using them. The programs aren’t too easy, and they aren’t too hard. This makes the teachers’ job more efficient because the programs will analyze and collect the data for them. Steady progression is the name of the game and the programs come with instructions for the teachers, which helps them to effectively use the programs in the classroom. This is definitely a win-win situation. Rocketship Education is based in San Jose, California, but it has now spread throughout the US. Nashville, Tennessee, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Washington D.D., and the Bay Area of Northern California is where you’ll find the schools.

Whether it’s mathematics, or it’s reading, these computer-based programs are very comprehensive. Rocketship Education has been developed under three core pillars. This includes personalized learning, parent power and talent development. Every child deserves to have the option of going to college and Rocketship Education has definitely made this notion possible.
