Singer Demi Lovato vows to ‘keep fighting’ after suspected drug overdose

Demi Lovato has released a statement thanking fans for their support after her suspected drug overdose on 24 July.

‘I have always been transparent about my journey with addictions,’ she shared with fans on Instagram.

‘What I have 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 your love and support this past week and beyond,’ she continued.

‘Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time, I want to thank my family and team and staff at Ceders-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time.

‘Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.

‘I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery.

‘The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and i look forward to the day I can say I came out on the other side.

‘I will keep fighting, Demi.’

The 25-year-old has been in Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles for the past week after suffering a suspected overdose at her Hollywood Hills home.

In early August it was claimed that Demi has agreed to check in to a live-in rehab facility when she is discharged from hospital.

According to TMZ, plans have already been made with a facility to send Demi straight from hospital, although it is unknown whether the rehab centre is in California or another state.

Lovato, who shot to fame on the Disney series Sonny With A Chance, had been sober for six years, but suffered a relapse earlier this year.

This was detailed in her heartbreaking song Sober, in which she sang: ‘Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore/ And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor/ To the ones who never left me/ We’ve been down this road before/ I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.’

Demi has been open over the years about her struggles with drugs, alcohol and eating disorders, and has completed two prior stints in rehab
