Demi Lovato is currently in Chicago after suffering an overdose on July 24.  She’s undergoing treatment with a therapist who specializes in sobriety, mental health, & wellness, but she will return back to rehab after her treatment in Chicago is completed & will reside at the facility for several months.  Demi is taking part in an extensive rehabilitation program to ensure she gets the help she needs. The stay in Chicago is just one part of the bigger recovery plan she has in place to heal and get her addiction in check.  Lovato had to cancel the remaining dates of her “Tell Me You Love Me” tour dates, also keeping contact with the outside world to a minimum.  According to an insider, she “hasn’t been in communication with anyone,” including her ex Wilmer Valderrama, who was devastated by her relapse and visited her multiple times at the hospital in L.A. He is, however, in touch with her family. She “is really focusing on herself” and “her health right now,” and her family is making sure they “eliminate all distractions.”  Apparently, the singer texted a drug dealer to come to her house the night of her overdose.  Direct sources to the singer said “Demi had been at a party in WeHo following a birthday celebration at Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip. After the drug dealer got the text, he came to her house and we’re told the 2 freebased Oxycodone on tin foil.” However, the batch “appeared to be laced with fentanyl.” Fentanyl is the same drug that reportedly killed Prince back in 2016.  Lovato was revived with Narcan, which can restore normal breathing for someone who has overdosed on fentanyl, heroin, or prescription painkillers. An insider claims that “Demi is doing much better” overall. “She has become more open and is happy she is getting the help she needs.” That realization came after she began to “grasp the severity of what happened and that she almost died.”
