Demi Lovato has reached 90 days of sobriety, according to her mother, Dianna De La Garza.
"It has 90 days," he confirmed in an interview on Maria Menounos' Sirius XM show on Friday, October 26. "I could not be more grateful or more proud of her because addiction is a disease, it's a job, it's very difficult, it's not easy and there are no shortcuts."
The singer has been in rehabilitation since he was hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose in July.
His mother admitted that "I really can not say for sure" which led to her daughter's relapse.
"I knew I was not sober," De La Garza said of Lovato, who apologized for not being sober in his ballad "Sober," published in June. "I did not know what I was doing because she does not live with me and she is 26 years old."
De La Garza recounted the moment he found out about Lovato's overdose and said the text messages alerted him that something had happened. "The text message that gave me information about what was happening said: & # 39; I just saw him at TMZ and I'm really sorry", he said. "Before I could get to TMZ, I got the call from her assistant and she told me:" We're in the hospital. "Then I knew, it's okay, she's not gone, she's here. I said: "What's going on?" And the words I heard are just a nightmare for any parent: "Demi overdose".
In August, Lovato shared an emotional message on social media about overcoming addiction: "Now I need time to recover and focus on my sobriety and on the road to recovery," he wrote on Instagram. "The love that all of you have shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day when I can say that I went out on the other side.
