Demi Lovato Finally Agrees to Enter Rehab
There are two pieces of good news.
One, Demi has agreed to go to rehab. And two, the arrangements for rehab have already been made.
They also report that a plan has been formed with the intended facility.
According to TMZ’s sources, Demi’s family raised the issue of rehab directly — after waiting for days.
The reason for the delay was that Demi’s health was in a precarious place. Her scary overdose had a number of complications.
While she was so sick, apparently her family did not want to raise any contentious topics. That’s smart.
As we mentioned and as TMZ reports, Demi is still at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
But her stay at the hospital won’t be indefinite.
One source tells TMZ: “She’s getting out any day now.”
We don’t doubt it.
When she leaves the hospital, however, she won’t be headed home.
Insiders say that Demi won’t be taking a few days to recover from her stay at the hospital at home or in a hotel.
She will instead be headed directly to rehab.
We do not yet know which live-in rehab facility will become her new residence for the next little while.
In fact, we don’t even know if it’s in California or elsewhere.
We know that it is unlikely to be one in L.A. because there are so many triggers for Demi’s addiction.
We also know that it’s likely to be somewhere that can accommodate a celebrity who just had an extraordinarily public overdose.
Demi continues to have the love and support of her fans, her family, and her friends.
Unfortunately, in the aftermath of Demi’s overdose, her BFF Dani Vitale received death threats as some furious Lovatics blamed her for somehow being responsible for Demi’s overdose.
Vitale had to beg Demi’s fans to stop sending death threats, clarifying that though Demi had been celebrating her birthday hours earlier, she was with another group of people when she died.
Death threats aren’t okay either way, but it adds another layer of cruelty to try to blame someone who cares about Demi on such a personal level.
Just weeks before her overdose, Demi had revealed to the world that she had fallen off of the wagon in terms of her sobriety.
Prior to that, she had recently celebrated six years of sobriety.
This is a grim reminder that addiction isn’t cured by sobriety, and stays with people. It can be frighteningly easy for someone to fall back onto old, potentially deadly habits.
And no amount of financial resources or personal support makes someone immune to addiction.
We hope that Demi makes a full and speedy recovery. She has millions of people who love and adore her.
