Last week, Demi Lovato was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering from an apparent overdose, potentially from heroin.
“Demi’s turned the corner and is doing much better,” an unnamed source told E! News. “She will be released in the next few days and the plan is for her to go to rehab. She is starting to grasp the severity of what happened and that she almost died.”
“She is scared and grateful to be alive,” the source continued. “Her family hasn’t left her side and have consulted with several people to figure out what the best plan of action is. Everyone wants her to take it very seriously and she seems to be.”
In late July, Lovato was found unconscious in her home and given an allegedly life-saving dose of Narcan, which is used to treat narcotics overdoses.
The same day, multiple sources described her condition as “stable,” though other details about the situation have been disputed by several sources.
What is true is that the 25-year-old has struggled with substance abuse for years and has been open about the tough road to sobriety. In 2010, she checked herself into rehab with the stated interested to treat an eating disorder and work on her mental health and substance abuse.
In March of this year, she celebrated six years sober, but by June, she had released a song titled “Sober” in which she clearly admits to a relapse.
