Almost two weeks after Demi Lovato‘s near fatal drug overdose, the singer has been discharged from hospital and checked straight into the best treatment center ohio for rehab.
TMZ is reporting that she took a private plane to one of the nation’s leading addiction facilities.
It is unknown how long she will stay there, but is expected to remain under care for at least 30 days.
Demi spoke to fans via Instagram yesterday where she thanked everyone for their love and support:
Breaking her silence since the overdose, the singer wrote: ‘I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.
‘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.’
Demi also thanked her family and staff at Cedars-Sinai who stayed by her side ‘the entire time’.
‘Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.’
Meanwhile, her management team is said to be working overtime to weed out the bad influences in her life.
TMZ alleges that the list of ‘toxic’ people include a distant relative of Demi as well as ‘yes’ friends, drug users and anyone without the singer’s best interests at heart.
Insiders have revealed that Demi will also be advised to change her phone number and only give the new number out to a select group of people in a bid to sweep out the negativity from her life.
Best of luck to her in her recovery. Everybody is pulling for her.
A source told People: ‘She understands the severity of her overdose and the recovery has been very challenging for her.
‘She wants to be sober. She wants to get help. She understands that it will take a lot of work and commitment to stay healthy, but this is what she wants.’
Friends of the star have told People they think the only way Demi can get better is to ‘completely quit show business’, claiming: ‘She needs to get out of this whole system that she has been in since she was 13.’
