Demi Lovato was reportedly using meth days before she overdosed on heroin

Singer Demi Lovato overdosed on heroin on Tuesday, weeks after she relapsed following six years of sobriety. While she is out of danger, responsive, and recovering at a hospital in Los Angeles, details about her condition in the days leading up to the overdose have started to surface.
According to TMZ, Demi had been partying all night at her $8 million Hollywood Hills home prior to her Tuesday overdose just before noon. She apparently had friends with her at the time who tried to revive her with Narcan — a medication used to block the effects of opioids, especially in overdose.
The friends then notified her family before fleeing the scene and did not wait for emergency workers to arrive. While several sources believe she had been relapsing over the last few weeks, not all of them are convinced that her overdose occurred from heroin.
Daily Mail Online reported one particular source saying that Demi had begun using right after firing her sober coach earlier this month. The Blast reported that a nurse at the hospital she's being treated in said that Demi had been using methamphetamine prior to her overdose.
There were photographs of drug paraphernalia taken by the officers at her house and they even found remnants of the drugs being used but charges weren't pressed as they were responding to a medical call and not a crime report.
Tuesday afternoon also saw Demi's 16-year-old actor sister Madison De La Garza heading into her home shortly after emergency workers had arrived at the scene and taken her to the hospital despite her requests to not be given treatment. It still remains unclear how long she will be staying at the hospital or whether she will be checking into rehab right away.
"Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support," her rep has said. "Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now."
However, speaking of the company she was surrounded by at the time of her alleged overdose, her long-time guitarist Mike Manning shared some pretty strong sentiments about the way they acted.
"Anybody who was with Demi last night and actually calls themselves a friend should actually be disgusted with themselves. SICK!" wrote Manning. "You can never trust anyone. Never can you know if your "friends" are truly on your side or not."
Manning also added: "The snakes are always alive. Don't be fooled. The devils lurk in the shadows. I am disgusted by the self-serving demons," and mentioned planning to expose the ones involved, saying: "I almost lost my sister today."
While it is still unknown who these people accompanying her were, it had been previously reported that Demi was at a birthday party in Saddle Ranch for one of her backup dancers. Daily Mail reported that a video showed at last three members of her dance crew at the scene.
