Last week, Demi Lovato, 25, was rushed to the hospital after an apparent drug overdose. Now, she's taken a major step in the right direction by agreeing to enter rehab.
A source for People said Lovato is well enough to leave the hospital this weekend and has agreed to enter a drug treatment center.
“It’s her choice to go to rehab. This is not anything that can be forced. She understands the severity of her overdose and the recovery has been very challenging for her,” the source said. “She wants to be sober. She wants to get help. She understands that it will take a lot of work and commitment to stay healthy, but this is what she wants.”
Another Lovato source from E! News said the reason the singer has agreed to enter rehab is because, "she is scared and grateful to be alive. Everyone wants her to take it very seriously and she seems to be."
Lovato reportedly wants to make a statement to her family, friends and fans alike that she's strong and can get through this.
We're happy to see Demi's taking steps to get the help she needs.
