Demi Lovato is celebrating six months of sobriety today, and her posts on Instagram to commemorate her milestone show that she has a supportive team behind her. In two back-to-back stories, Lovato published an image of a cake with a card, and then a photo of her six-month sobriety coin.
"Happy 6 mo. We are so fucking proud of you! Love, Team DL," the card says.
The milestone comes after Lovato was hospitalized after a highly publicized overdose in July. She remained in the hospital for about three weeks before going into treatment, and she's kept a relatively low profile ever since. Still, she's broken her silence a few times and opened up to fans about her sobriety.
Lovato also released a statement in August, writing, "I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time."
In December, Lovato got candid again on Twitter, this time using her platform to blast tabloids that have spread mistruths about her addiction. She took agency and promised that "someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today…but until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal."
Lovato has always been honest about her struggles with addiction, and her candid approach to discussing these issues has helped change how the entertainment industry addresses the topic. Throughout the recovery process, Lovato has had a legion of fans and celebrities rallying behind her and voicing their love and encouragement.
The six-month posts shows that Lovato is still surrounded by people who care and are committed to helping her throughout the recovery process—and it's a testament of her own strength and resilience.
