Demi Lovato has issued her first public statement addressing her drug overdose from a couple of weeks ago. Lovato posted to her Instagram account with a statement in which she acknowledges her addiction issues resurfaced and saying she’s going to be taking time to focus on her sobriety and recovery. The statement comes after a report last week that she had agreed to enter rehab to try and kick her addictions.

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction,” Lovato wrote. “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 suffered an overdose on an unnamed drug back on July 24th that nearly killed her and forced EMTs to revive her with the anti-opioid Narcan. She has been in the hospital since then, as the overdose left her sick and bedridden.
