Victoria Doramus has been through a lot during her life and continues to keep fighting back. As a market trend analyst, she has worked with companies such as Stila Cosmetics, Mindshare, Trendera, and more. At one point Victoria Doramus was even Peter Borg’s personal assistant.
While her life may seem glamorous, it certainly wasn’t always this way. Victoria Doramus has battled addictions to both alcohol and drugs and come out on top. It may have been a difficult process, but she knew she couldn’t give up when she was at her worst.
Despite having a career and seemingly everything going for her, Victoria Doramus’ struggle with addiction got worse. She had gone to rehab in 2011 when she was 26 and while she felt that she had gotten better, for the time being, it was only time before the disease made another appearance.
At the time, Victoria Doramus didn’t quite understand the disease that she was battling with. She thought that she could just run away from the problems but soon learned that didn’t work. Victoria Doramus went from LA then to London and left everyone behind, but the addiction was still close behind her.
Addiction is not something that you can just run away from, it follows you everywhere. It took many years for Victoria Doramus to figure this out and by then she had hit rock bottom. She had alienated herself from her friends and family due to her behavior and addition to pills and cocaine. At one point, Victoria Doramus became homeless because of her disease and she knew that things had to change immediately.
She began long-term treatment after being arrested at a facility called Burning Tree. It was a very tough love approach and Victoria Doramus credits it for her sobriety. Her times were spent doing chores, going to meetings, and truly facing the behaviors that had torn apart her life. Victoria Doramus is still involved with the recovery group AA and hopes to be able to help others in her situation. She believes that teenagers and young adults need to be educated on the reality of drug addiction.
