Demi Lovato's Family Plans to Get Her Into Rehab Following Hospitalization

Lovato being awake "doesn't tell us much" but it does mean "she is now going to be safe and evaluated a little bit more closely for what the cause of her being found unconscious was, whether it was drug-related or otherwise", said Dr. Sherry Yafai, a trained ER physician who works as the director of research and development at the High Sobriety recovery clinic in Los Angeles and the medical director of the Releaf institute for pain management.

'@ddlovato we love you.

On July 24, 2018, TMZ reported that Demi Lovato was taken to the hospital as the result of an apparent overdose. It's such a contrast with all the pop songs about getting drunk and wasted, partying, forgetting what you did the night before because you were so blackout. "She's pushed her true friends away".

"When I was 14, she was an idol to me in how she spoke so openly about mental health".

While other pop stars have covered up struggles with addiction and mental illness by talking about exhaustion or stress, Lovato has constantly been open about her personal experiences struggling with sobriety for six years. Lovato earned praise and more hit songs for her collaborations with the electronic music groups Cheat Codes and Clean Bandit.

Joe Jonas, who appeared with Demi in Disney films like Camp Rock, wrote: "Like all of you I am thinking of @DDLovato right now". No word on whether the same friends went back to Lovato's for an after-party. She did not return for the third season of "Sonny" after checking into rehab in 2010, also leaving an worldwide tour with the Jonas Brothers.

Her second album, "Here We Go Again", released in 2009.


Social media has completely changed the pop landscape. "People are understandably concerned and I think that no matter what happens next people are going to be supportive of her".

"I think everybody just wants her to be OK and there's no feeling that I can perceive of (people saying), 'How dare she?' or anything like that", Lipshutz said.

RBC says tickets will automatically be refunded for Sunday's RBCxMusic, which was to also include singer-songwriter Jason Mraz.

The source added it was Demi's friends who saved her life with Narcan, an emergency medication used to treat opioid overdoses.

The concert had been announced in support of tele-counselling service Kids Help Phone.

In the heartbreaking song, Demi revealed that she was "not sober anymore", apologising to her parents, friends, lovers, fans and herself for her relapse.
