Two weeks after her heroin overdose, Demi Lovato has been released from Cedars-Sinai Hospital and has been flown to a rehab facility.
She stayed at the hospital for two weeks following an overdose incident, and agreed to go to rehab while she was admitted.
According to E!, Lovato was discharged from the hospital on Saturday and flown straight to a rehab facility where she will be spending a significant amount of time. Lovato was found unconscious in her LA home on Tuesday. Paramedics administered Narcan, which is used to reverse to opioid overdoses and took her to the hospital.
After a brief period of recovery, Demi finally spoke up about what had happened. She took to Instagram to address her downtime, writing, “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 not done yet.”
She also wrote, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. 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.”

Lovato has spent time in rehab in the past as well. The singer battled addiction and eating disorders in the past. Despite being sober for a long time, she informed fans in her new song Sober that she had fallen off the wagon. Right before her overdose, Lovato and her friends were partying hard for several months and on the night of her overdose, she partied for 12 hours straights.
Lovato’s ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrrama visited her in the hospital regularly. The two dated for six years before breaking up in 2016. Lovato previously credited him for her three years of sobriety, “I really wouldn’t be alive today without him. I love you, Wilmer.”
Lovato has not yet revealed how long she will be in rehab.
