In 2018, actress and singer Demi Lovato almost died from a drug overdose, with doctors telling her family that she had less than 10 minutes to live.
Shortly before that overdose, Lovato described going on a “shopping spree” for drugs, which included moving on to heavier narcotics like heroin and crack cocaine.
You can add meth into the mix, with Lovato saying that during her worst spell, she “just went to town”, mixing meth “with [ecstasy], with coke, weed, alcohol, oxycontin”.
From starring alongside Barney in Barney & Friends to achieving global success as the star of 2008’s Disney musical Camp Rock, it really was quite a fall from grace.
Thankfully, she’s in a much better place now and has opened up about her struggles in a four-part documentary series titled Dancing With the Devil, with the first two episodes premiering on YouTube this week.
This from Huff Post, before we head to the episodes:
The 28-year-old said she’d begun to use heroin and crack cocaine recreationally after trying them when a dealer didn’t have her usual preferred combination of cocaine and Xanax.
Her addiction to both drugs got so bad, she said, that she was a heavy user of both after her Tell Me You Love Me tour and that she even once interrupted a game night to quietly take the drugs in a friend’s bathroom.
There’s no holding back during her account of the worst days of her addiction:
In the second episode, Lovato and her closest confidants give firsthand accounts of the aftermath of the overdose, when she woke up in the hospital having been minutes from death:
The next episode will air on YouTube next Tuesday, March 30, at 9PM our time, with the synopsis stating Demi “goes to rehab and begins her road to recovery, but with bumps along the way. As she returns to the stage for the first time since her overdose, she needs to find balance in her life.”
