"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction", she wrote in an Instagram message on August 5.
But now the singer is feeling well enough to release a statement to concerned fans, and it seems like Lovato is back on the long road to recovery.
The "Sober" singer was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles nearly two weeks ago following an alleged overdose but she was discharged from the medical facility on Saturday, August 4, and boarded a private plane to an unnamed facility outside of California. "What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time". Later in the song, she apologizes to letting down her fans: "I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again / I wanna be a role model, but I'm only human".
"Momma, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor", her lyrics read. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this hard time'.
Sources close to the pop star tell TMZ that "there will be a major focus on separating her from toxic people in her life once she gets out of rehab - including even a distant relative who is believed to have a negative impact on her".
Demi was rushed to hospital on July 24 after being found unresponsive at her home in the Hollywood Hills. I will keep fighting, ' she wrote.
Earlier this summer, Demi dropped the aching new ballad "Sober" which nodded at the singer's apparent relapse, despite having been sober for six years previously.
