Demi Lovato Breaks Silence For First Time Since Overdose
Demi Lovato has release a statement for the first time since her overdose on July 24.
“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,” she wrote Sunday on her Instagram account.
“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well,” she added, before praising her fans for standing by her through this difficult time.

Lovato’s statement comes two days after sources told PEOPLE that the songstress has agreed to enter a drug treatment center following her release from Cedars-Sinai in L.A.
“Demi is well enough to leave the hospital this weekend. She has agreed to rehab and will go straight to an in-patient facility,” a source explained. “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.”
