Victoria started using marijuana in high school with friends. After graduating, she didn’t feel like going to college. Instead, she attended a culinary program which gave her the opportunity to work in some of Canada’s top restaurants in Montreal. However, her addiction to alcohol cost Victoria her job and her addiction escalated to cocaine, crack cocaine and opioids. She was tired of always feeling sick due to the drugs, so she got onto methadone to help ease the symptoms but continued to use. Victoria tried six other treatment programs prior to Aurora and all were unsuccessful. Now, after a lengthy stay of six months at our centre, she’s more than eight months sober. Victoria says she feels alive again. Watch her incredible story below.
