“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction," Lovato posted on her Instagram, breaking her silence on August 5th. "What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."

Adding, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting,”
