Demi confessed:

“The final one, everyone was like, ├óΓé¼╦£We are no longer going to leave, we are leaving.’ That was the moment when I thought, ├óΓé¼╦£Okay, I really need to get help and get sober.’ This time I knew├óΓé¼┬ª I had hit rock bottom and I just needed to do this for myself.”

The 25-year-old continued:

“I knew that I had a lot of life ahead of me but one of the main reasons of getting sober was so that I could be around my little sister because my mom and dad [said I couldn’t be around her] if I was doing stuff.”

But it was with all their support that she has been able to get to a much better place:

“I went through some tough times and went to treatment for some struggles that I had and now I’ve come out the other side. I use my stories to help others and inspire them to get the help they need… I had family and really close friends and my manager, they all were by my side through everything. I wouldn’t be here without them. My fans too, I feel they gave me a reason to live and I’m forever grateful.”

We’re so glad she sought treatment!

She’s so much stronger for it!
