"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction.
Following Demi Lovato's overdose, the star has taken to Instagram to thank her family, her team and the staff at Cedars-Sinai rehab.
What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears with time. It Is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."
She continued "I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time."
