TMZ reports that Demi Lovato was in such poor health when she overdosed that her assistant thought she had died. Regarding the "Heart Attack" singer's journey toward sobriety, the gossip rag alleged that her family chose to hold off on discussing the topic of rehab as she recovered to avoid upsetting her "with something that might trigger conflict".

While the singer will have the final say in the matter, people close to her have put their foot down leaving her with only two options, go for rehab or lose their numbers.

We're told she's still at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but one source says, "She's getting out any day now".

"She will be released in the next few days and the plan is for her to go to rehab", a source told E! People close to Lovato told her that they would cut her out of their lives if she did not get treatment. According to TMZ, Lovato's assistant was yelling, "she's dead, she's dead", when Lovato's bodyguard arrived at the home.

Demi experienced complications after her apparent overdose and remained in the hospital with extreme nausea and fever.

They then began wandering from lawn to lawn, looking for snacks, meeting the neighbours and attracting all the attention. None of the residents have filed a complaint about the situation, Schellhaas said, and nobody was cited for the incident.

Demi is said to be leaving hospital later this week, although her expected discharge date has not been made public.

Although it unclear which drug she took that initiated her overdose, Lovato was treated with Narcan by her friends, which is used to treat those who have O.D. on opioids.

It has also been informed that Demi is filled with the guilt of letting down her family and her loved ones.

She's taken the rehab route before.

In June, she released a song called "Sober" about a relapse after six years of sobriety. Doctors are not even predicting when she might get out of the hospital, so there's still time to discuss. For a long time she led a sober way of life, but recently again returned to the addiction.
