Victoria Doramus Overcame Her Addiction

Victoria Doramus went to rehab in Tucson, Arizona for Adderall and cocaine addiction in 2011. She learned a lot during those 45 days that she brought with her to LA. She tried getting new friends, moving, and attending grad school in London before going to a rehab center in Connecticut in 2016. She then went to NYC where she eventually became homeless. She was struggling with amphetamines, sometimes consuming a bottle a day. She was arrested on Thanksgiving in 2106 while alone in NYC.

In a post from Blog Web Pedia, She decided to fly to Austin, Texas in 2017, to Burning Tree. This center had a 12-step program, where you begin every day with prayer and meditation. You then do chores before joining a group to have peer confrontations. Every night they had AA meetings, and she acknowledged the existence of a higher power. Once she was done with the program, she moved to a Dallas halfway house/sober living house. She began waiting tables and riding the bus to work. She worked for four months before taking a plane ride to see her mom in Nashville, Tennessee.

In January, Victoria, a marketing expert, went back to NYC to work with different addiction non-profits. She helps others who are suffering with addictions, and she wants to start her own halfway house in NYC. She wrote a memoir called Adderall: A Love Story. She believes you can’t overcome your addiction alone, but need peer support and personal responsibility. She obtained peace by not trying to control the outcome. She talks to an addiction therapists and addiction groups to maintain sobriety. Victoria (@iamvictorialynn) was honest with herself and stopped acting like a victim. She has changed a lot for the better, and hopes to continue her self discovery.
