Demi Lovato To Reportedly Remain In Rehab Through The End Of The Year

Singer Demi Lovato is continuing to get the help she needs.

The "Skyscraper" hitmaker will reportedly remain in rehab through the end of 2018 after suffering a drug overdose in late July, Entertainment Tonight reports.

According to a source cited by the media outlet on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, "Demi is taking her sobriety extremely serious, and knows she has a long road ahead of her." Adding that the 26-year-old pop star is "doing this for herself," the insider noted, "Every time she has family or friends visit her it reminds her of all the other important people in her life that she needs to fight for as well."

With the "Heart Attack" singer remaining focused on her journey toward sobriety, the source said, "Demi is thankful she's still alive and is doing whatever she can to never get to that point again."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Lovato was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after being found unresponsive in her home on July 24, 2018. Following her apparent opioid overdose, the singer-songwriter, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, entered rehab. "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," the Disney Channel alum wrote on social media at the time, adding, "I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. ... I will keep fighting."

Since then, Lovato's family has kept the "Confident" singer's fans updated on her health. In September, her 16-year-old sister, Madison De La Garza, told Millennial Hollywood that her older sister is thankfully "doing really well" these days. Meanwhile, mom Dianna De La Garza, who has since spoken out about the epidemic of opioid addiction in America, revealed that her daughter reached 90 days of sobriety last week. During her recent appearance on the Conversations with Maria Menounos podcast, she said, "I couldn't be more thankful or more proud of her, because addiction, being a disease, it is work. It's very hard, it's not easy, and there are no shortcuts."

Our thoughts remain with Lovato during her recovery.
