“Demi left the hospital over the weekend. She will get continued care at an in-patient rehab facility,” an unnamed source told People. “At the hospital, she was surrounded by family and friends that support her sobriety. They all want Demi to be the best she can. Demi is surrounded by a lot of love. She has people in her life that really care. She has a long journey ahead, but with all the love, her journey could absolutely be a positive one.”
The singer added that she now needs time to heal and focus on her sobriety and recovery. In June, just a month before her alleged overdose, Lovato released the honest ballad “Sober,” in which she sings, “Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore. Daddy, please forgive me for the spilled drinks on the floor. The ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before. I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.” The singer has been very open about her struggles with addiction, mental illness and eating disorders over the years and entered treatment in 2010.
According to TMZ, Lovato took a private plane to the unnamed facility, reportedly outside of California, where she is expected to stay for “an extended period of time.”
