Demi Lovato looks happy as she steps out in public for the first time amid her stay in rehab
After all the hue and cry died down from her overdose, the singer posted a message on Instagram. She mentioned how she must now focus on her sobriety and her road to recovery.
Nearly two months ago, on July 24, singer Demi Lovato sent the music world and her fans into a tizzy after she was rushed to the hospital for being unconscious after a drug overdose. She was treated with Narcan, an emergency treatment for narcotics overdoses. Now in a new photo obtained by TMZ, the star was seen in public, looking healthy, walking along the street deep in conversation with a friend. Previous media reports have all highlighted how the pop star is determined to return sober and this picture gives fans hopes of her proper recovery.
This picture of the star is the first in nearly two months after the harrowing episode in her life. The singer did not want to draw any attention to herself and tried to hide her face under a cap with her long hair tied up in a messy bun in the back. Her style has not suffered a bit as social media quickly dissected her choice of attire. She wore a green military jacket, black luxe jeans, D-bee sneakers and a Marcus Adler black leather baseball cap.

She looked happy and carefree as she enjoyed a cup of coffee on her Sunday day pass from her rehab facility.
Last month after all the hue and cry died down from her overdose, the singer posted a message on Instagram for her fans. She mentioned how she must continue to overcome her addiction and how she has been unable to do it as yet. She also informed fans that she would be needing time to heal and focus on her sobriety as she begins her road to recovery.
The singer's mother Dianna De La Garza in an interview after her daughter was admitted to the hospital spoke of the dark days that had followed in the wake of the overdose. “It was something I never, ever expected to hear as a parent, about any of my kids,” she said. “She was in bad shape, but I said to her, ‘Demi, I’m here, I love you,'” De La Garza recalled. “And at that point, she said back to me, ‘I love you, too.’ From that point on, I never allowed myself to ever think that things weren’t going to be OK.” She said Lovato, who was released from the hospital to go to rehab in early August, is doing well. “She’s happy, she’s healthy, she’s working on her sobriety, and she’s getting the help she needs,” De La Garza said, “and that, in itself, encourages me about her future and the future of our family.”
