Recovery Expert, Victoria Doramus, Shares Her Life Experiences to Help Others Overcome Their Addictions
Victoria Doramus is an addiction recovery expert established in London, England. She is also a talented digital and print media specialist. She has gained substantial experience in advertising, communications, media, and branding. From 2002 to 2006, she was enrolled at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO where Victoria earned a BA in mass communication and journalism. She has gained much experience working in media and has worked with several companies including Mindshare, Creative Arts Agency, Trendera, and Stila Cosmetics. From 2014 to 2016, Victoria Doramus was the personal assistant to film director and producer, Peter Berg.
Victoria Doramus became an addiction recovery expert because she had first-hand experience dealing with addiction, so she understands what addicts deal with every day. She had hit rock bottom with own addiction before she understood how addiction had taken over her life. Victoria Doramus had gone to two rehab centers and relapsed both times. On Thanksgiving 2016, she realized she needed to do something for herself because her addiction caused her to become alienated from her friends and family, so she was determined to change.
In January 2017, Victoria Doramus went to Austin, Texas to The Burning Tree which is another rehab center. This center’s recovery program was explicitly designed to help chronic relapsers. She left The Burning Tree in August to stay in a halfway house in Dallas Texas. In January 2018, she moved back to New York. Victoria Doramus has been successful in staying sober by attending seeing an addiction therapist, going to group meetings, and helping others who are struggling with their addictions.
Helping people deal with their addictions has led Victoria Doramus to become involved with other types of charities, including the Amy Winehouse Foundation where she is a volunteer. She also volunteers with Best Friends Animal Society, Room to Read, and the Women’s Prison Association. Victoria Doramus is also working on starting a halfway house in New York.
