Demi Lovato is ‘awake and with her family’ after a reported drug overdose, in which the drug is currently unknown as Lovato would not speak on the topic. Paramedics found Lovato unconscious at her house in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, CA with an apparent drug overdose. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Demi was treated with Narcan, an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses, in her home upon arrival.
Lovato’s team released a statement about her condition saying, “Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support. Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy…” This comes a few hours after Lovato’s aunt, Kerissa Dunn, posted on social media (Facebook) saying that Demi is “awake and responsive.”
Demi has been fighting through the demons of substance abuse for several years, at one point she even lived in a sober living home after getting released from a treatment center. She had been 6 years sober from Alcohol, Cocaine and Oxycontin until last month, where Lovato revealed that she had fallen off the sober wagon via a new song that she released called “Sober,” where she apologized to her fans and family for using.
We are sending Demi Lovato, her team, her family and friends and her fans prayers during Lovato’s struggle and wish her all the success and health we could possibly wish upon her. Wishing her success on the road to recovery and hope she can return to the sober path of life.
