Demi Lovato Speaks Out For First Time Since Alleged Overdose

By  | 

It’s been a difficult several weeks for Demi Lovato, who was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on July 24 after suffering from an apparent overdose at her Los Angeles home.

Over the last couple of weeks, Demi has remained at the hospital due to medical complications caused by the overdose, and while Demi’s people did release a statement saying she was “okay and stable,” fans were still left wondering about the status of Demi’s health and her plans for the future.

Well, thanks to a letter Demi posted today on Instagram, her fans no longer have to wonder. In the letter, Demi made it clear that she’s committed to her recovery, and she gave a special thanks to her fans for sticking by her side and being so understanding during this extremely rough time.

She wrote, “I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. 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.”

In the letter, Demi also thanked her family, her team, and the wonderful people at the hospital who’ve helped her recover. Most importantly, though, she addressed the process of recovery, saying she’s going to take some time to focus on her sobriety, which she realized is something that she “must continue to overcome.”

Although she didn’t detail any specific plans for her recovery, multiple sources have said that she will be heading directly to a rehabilitation facility after she’s released from the hospital, which a source told ET would be happening this week.

Demi closed out her letter on a positive note, telling fans “I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

We’re all rooting for you, Demi!
