Heroin Overdose Not Confirmed for Demi Lovato

Although spokespersons for Lovato have not yet commented about the alleged heroin overdose, Fox News reports that “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 and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.” (FOX News).

Lovato like many recovering addicts all throughout the world lives with the possibility of relapse every day. The solution to ending heroin and opioid overdoses and preventing relapse is professional drug and alcohol treatment. Lovato recently celebrated her six-year clean and sober Birthday this past March. She tweeted her thanks and expressed a warm attitude of gratitude.

The focus of this latest news story should not be whether Lovato did in fact relapse on opioids such as heroin or not. The focus needs to be on how others view the seriousness of the disease of addiction. Lovato has been forthcoming in her commitment to getting and staying clean and sober. She has publicly admitted that she is an addict and she deserves public support, not a judgment about what did or did not happen this past Tuesday. The fact of the matter is, she is a recovering addict who is battling addiction. The road to recovery often includes relapse but it does not have too.

Celebrities Struggling With Addiction

Demi Lovato is one of many celebrities with a history of struggling with addiction. She was a superstar at Disney and was swept into stardom at a very young age. As with many young pop music stars, the likelihood that they will experiment with drugs and become addicted is high.

Lovato has a successful history of addiction recovery and her solution began when she admitted she was an addict and got professional help. The solution in how to end someone’s addiction is professional addiction treatment and loving support from friends and family. Today, for Demi Lovato, the solution may just be the support of the public that will get her through the door towards long-term addiction recovery.
