Demi Lovato Officially Checks Into Rehab Following Drug Overdose
Demi Lovato is officially out of the hospital and in a rehab facility where she is seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, a source tells TMZ. The 25-year-old singer was reportedly discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, August 4, almost two weeks after she was rushed there to be treated for an overdose.
The site reports that the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer jumped on a private plane as soon as she was discharged from the hospital and flew to “one of the nation’s leading facilities for addiction,” which is outside of California.
D.Lo addressed the overdose for the first time yesterday, thanking fans for their support and promising to continue fighting for her sobriety.
“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well,” she wrote on Instagram. “To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.”
The statement continues, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”
We aren’t sure how long Demi plans to stay in the rehab center, but it will reportedly be for an “extended” period of at least 30 days.
