A Medical Expert Weighs In on Demi Lovato's Apparent Overdose

Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato dated for a

"She was dating someone who her family didn't approve of and they wanted her to stay far away from him, but she believes she can make her own decisions about who she hangs out with and who she dates". In an interview with Jonathan Ross, she thanks her fans for being there when she was at one of her lowest points with addiction.

I want to start by talking about the reaction to Demi Lovato's apparent overdose because it's been just an outpouring of support that we have not always seen in cases like this.

Law enforcement sources told the website that she was taken to a hospital in L.A., and that she was treated at home with Narcan, a medication used to reverse opioid overdoses.

NPR's Ari Shapiro talks with BEAT Magazine editor Michael Cragg about Lovato and social media's role in furthering the open discussion about struggles with addiction and mental health.

'I'm sure she's very upset, ' they said.

"I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again", Lovato sings in "Sober".

According to the source, the incident has been "traumatic" for Lovato and her family.

New reports claim paramedics were called to her $8-million Hollywood Hills home after an all-night party.

The pop star's publicist told E! They had no means to immediately put these things to rest. We all know how strong you are Demi.

But that isn't like that anymore. It came a month after she released a new song called "Sober", indicating that she relapsed after six years of sobriety. "Right now their plan is to keep her away from those people in her life that don't support a clean and sober future".

Lovato has also been candid about her experiences with eating disorders, self-harm, and mental health challenges. It's such a contrast with all the pop songs about getting drunk and wasted, partying, forgetting what you did the night before because you were so blackout. "In fact, I think that streghtented her recovery, because she was being of service". "Her family and friends, who weren't involved, fear she's been hanging with people who support her drug habit. And that's where the issue is really in the last six months, and her starting to disengage slowly from recovery and then, obviously, using to this extent".

"(She) has found enormous success by addressing those issues, and not only addressing them when they were still fresh, but also continuing to speak about them as she had been sober for years. Lovato earned praise and more hit songs for her collaborations with the electronic music groups Cheat Codes and Clean Bandit.
