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.
