Demi Lovato Is Now 90 Days Sober
Lovato's mom, Dianna De La Garza, has updated fans on the singer's recovery.
Demi Lovato is doing well.
Dianna De La Garza, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer's mother, has confirmed her daughter has reached an incredible milestone: 90 days sober.
During a guest appearance on Maria Menounos' Sirius XM show, Conversations with Maria Menounos, Dianna said she's proud of the progress Lovato has made despite her struggles with addiction.
"Yes, she has 90 days and I couldn't be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it's work," Dianna said. "It’s very hard, it's not easy and there are no shortcuts."
Lovato suffered a drug overdose in July and was rushed to the hospital after she was revived with Narcan. Following her hospitalization, she checked into a rehabilitation facility to continue her recovery.
When Dianna was asked what triggered her daughter to relapse, she admitted she's still in the dark. "I can't really say for sure. I really don't know," she said. "I knew that she wasn't sober. I didn't know what she was doing because she doesn't live with me and she's 26."
But what's important is the star is doing well and has a strong support system she can rely on during this difficult time. Before Lovato entered rehab, she took to Instagram to share an emotional post and open up about her status. She also thanked fans for their support.
"I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery," she wrote. "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."
Earlier this month, Demi's younger sister, Madison de la Garza, also shared how proud she was of the work her sister was putting in to get better.
"She's working really hard on her sobriety and we're all so incredibly proud of her. It's been crazy for our family. It's been a lot," she said. "We’ve been through a lot together, and every time we go through something we always come out on the other side a hundred times stronger than before. We’ve just been so thankful for everything, for the little things."
Addiction is an ongoing battle, and Lovato still has a long road ahead of her, but if she's done it once, we're confident she can do it again. With an ever loving and supportive family by her side and million fans cheering her on every step of the way, we have no doubt the singer will come out stronger than ever.
