On July 24, 2018, the “Skyscraper” star was rushed to the hospital from her home in the Hollywood Hills after an apparent drug overdose. Two weeks later, Lovato checked into rehab after being released from the hospital.
“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery,” Lovato wrote in a message to fans at the time. “The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”
And fight she did.
In Nov. 2018, three months after her overdose, Lovato was spotted out of rehab. Since leaving treatment, Lovato has worked to “clean house and start over,” a source tells E! News. Nowadays, the 26-year-old star has a “very set routine that she follows.”
“She works out at Unbreakable with a trainer several times a week. She goes to therapy. She eats healthy food and takes great care of herself,” the insider shares. “She goes to lunch or dinner with friends. Her health and well-being are her priority. Her life is simple but fulfilling because she is feeling great.”
The source adds that Lovato has been writing music and recording, telling E! News, “She has a lot to say and can’t wait to share it. She’s feeling the best she has ever felt and is very grateful.”
“Demi is very focused and committed to her sobriety and being the best version of herself that she can be,” the insider continues. “She has surrounded herself with good people and the right kind of friends. She has gotten rid of the negative influences and made a conscience effort to clean house and start over.”
“She has her family close by and they are a big support,” the source tells E! News. “Her team is also a constant and always there for her and she loves them dearly. She has worked very hard to get back on her feet. She doesn’t take anything for granted and wants to get the most out of every day and everything she does.”
On the eve of the one-year anniversary, Lovato was spotted out with her pals at a birthday celebration.
“Demi had a great time celebrating her friend’s 22nd birthday at Barton G. LA last night,” a second source tells E! News. “It was a party of 16 people and Demi had a mocktail.”
