Demi Lovato has released an official statment after being hospitalized two weeks ago, July 24, for an apparent heroin overdose.
“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction,” she wrote. “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 no done yet." Read the entire thing below:
Lovato has been open about her struggle with substance abuse and addiction throughout her career—she's previously released a YouTube Red documentary, Simply Complicated, which explored her road to recovery.
Earlier this year, Lovato released the single "Sober," which details her fall from sobriety and her struggle to get back on track.
