Demi Lovato is not out of the woods yet. Nearly one week ago, paramedics rushed the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after an apparent overdose. According to TMZ, the 25-year-old pop star is still in the hospital six days after the near-fatal incident and is struggling with serious complications.

Additionally, sources close to Lovato have revealed that she is suffering “extreme nausea and a high fever,” along with a host of other symptoms not uncommon with opioid overdoses. Despite the fact that the pop star did not divulge to the EMTs on the scene exactly what drug had led to her overdose, sources confirm that a dose of Narcan was part of Lovato’s emergency treatment plan. While doctors familiar with Lovato’s recovery have yet to reveal exactly when she will leave Cedars-Sinai, they’ve assured the public that “she is under the care of medical experts and is expected to make a full recovery.”

Thankfully, Lovato’s close family and ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama have kept the star company during her hospital stay and they’re fully supporting her recovery.

Recently, multiple attempts by her close friends and family to steer the star onto the path to sobriety have failed. Hopefully, Lovato’s downward spiral will serve as a wake-up call and push the hitmaker to abandon her unhealthy habits. To date, it is unclear as to whether or not Lovato will return home after her eventual release or enter an inpatient rehab facility.
