Demi Lovato Makes First Statement Following Apparent Overdose, Shows She's Strong and Persevering

We’ve been keeping close track of Demi Lovato’s journey with addiction and recovery. A few weeks after she was hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose, she seems to be on the mend and looking forward to stronger, healthier days ahead.


This passed weekend, she spoke out for the first time after her relapse, by posted a statement on her Instagram thanking her friends and fans and family for their support. In an Instagram post shared on Sunday afternoon, Lovato wrote,

"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.

I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.

I want to thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-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 where I can say I came out on the other side.

I will keep fighting – Demi.

The post has been liked almost five million times since yesterday and it’s clear Lovato has a lot of support and a lot of people hoping for her to come out stronger on the other side. We have so much respect for her positivity and perseverance during such a rough time, but staying strong and looking forward and accepting help when you need it is a great way to go about it.
