After suffering an overdose last month resulting in almost two weeks of hospitalization, Demi Lovato has checked into rehab, according to TMZ. Lovato was reportedly discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Saturday evening and taken to a facility “outside California” by way of a private plane.

On Sunday night, Lovato shared her first public statement since the July 24 overdose on Instagram, writing: “I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. 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.”

Lovato is expected to be in rehab for at least 30 days.

Addiction is pernicious. I have lost several people to it. Others I know have spent their lives in recovery from it.

The good news: people can overcome their addictions and lead excellent lives.

Best wishes to her good health and recovery.
