Demi Lovato is hopefully on the road to recovery.
According to Page Six and other businesses, the singer – who uses pronouns after coming out as a non-binary – recently returned to Utah for drug treatment.
The artist is now back home and “feeling good,” according to The New York Post.
No other details about Lovato’s fall off the wagon have been released, but they just came up with news late last year to say they enjoy a “California sober” lifestyle.
This is a term typically used by people who do not drink alcohol, however do smoking marijuana.
However, the pop star stretched the definition further and revealed in the autumn 2021 interviews that in addition to being stoned, they still indulge in a drink occasionally.
“By telling myself I can never have a drink or smoking marijuana, I feel like it’s getting me ready for failure because I’m such a black and white thinker,” Lovato said in a recent YouTube documentary about their life.
Lovato also complained in this film about the setback they got for pursuing an unconventional path to recovery
“When I get into details with people, it just opens myself up to more scrutiny than I need to,” they said at the time.
Maybe after some sort of incident in early December, however, Demi went back all the sober California thing.
“I no longer support my California sober ways,” the 29-year-old artist shared on their Instagram Story just over a month ago. “Sober sober is the only way to be.”
We’re glad the star has come to this way of thinking.
“Demi are committed to their well-being, and throughout their lives they plan to make regular check-ins to make sure they put themselves first,” an insider tells People Magazine now.
Adds a Us Weekly source:
“Demi wants a sober living companion [with] them during this transition. It was their decision to go back to rehab. “
In 2018, Lovato almost died of an overdose.
They said afterwards that they had “brain damage” as a result after suffering three strokes and a heart attack in the wake of this overdose.
Last year, however, Demi told People they “would not change anything” and they are “so proud of the person I am today.”
Added Lovato to this publication:
“Everything had to happen so I could learn the lessons I learned.
“It was a painful journey and I look back and sometimes I get upset when I think of the pain I had to endure to overcome what I have.
“But I do not regret anything.”
The Grammy nominee was previously in a treatment center in August 2018 and also two years earlier.
“I was living fast and I was going to die young. I did not think I would get to 21,” Lovato confessed to American Way in July 2016.
“So now I’m in rehab and I thought, ‘Oh well, now the world thinks I’m just another stereotype … I did not go into treatment and thought,’ OK, now I have to be an inspiration. ‘
“At times I was angry at having that kind of responsibility, but now it’s really become a part of my life. It keeps me responsible.”
