In July, news broke that singer Demi Lovato had suffered a dangerous drug overdose and was hospitalized in Los Angeles. Now, several months later, Lovato's mother, Dianna De La Garza, is updating the public on how proud she is of her daughter and her ongoing efforts to beat addiction.
Reporting that her daughter has now been sober for 90 days, La Garza told Teen Vogue:
I couldn't be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it's work.
90 days sober for demi lovato today. makes my heart happy.— Andrea Russett (@Andrea Russett)1540777764.0
Lovato's progress is especially welcome news, especially to La Garza, for whom the day of Lovato's overdose was one of the most frightening of her life:
I was looking at my phone and I saw all these text messages coming in from all over. One text message that clued me in on what was going on said, 'I just saw on TMZ and I'm so sorry,'...I was terrified to look at my phone.

It's...not easy and there are no shortcuts.
