This included issues with substance abuse, addiction, an eating disorder, and self-injury disorder and being in the public eye only made her internal struggles more hard. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness.
On Thursday morning, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer took to Twitter to celebrate her anniversary of being sober.
The 25-year-old also got help for an eating disorder, and self harming struggles, which she has been very open with in the past.
Her book reveals the struggle with fame and mental illness and what's possible with the love and support of family. She first entered rehab in 2010, at just 18, after punching a backup dancer on her tour with the Jonas brothers, where she sought treatment for drug and alcohol addictions, bipolar disorder, and an eating disorder. "The woman that went into treatment when I finally did accept help, I think she was just a broken, exhausted - just a really sick girl".

Lovato added, "I know it's not easy to be open with the world and for her to share her story is something that I'm extremely proud of". "And I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala - fake and sucking the fashion industry's d--".
Her mom echoed that advice, adding, "Reach out and get help from wherever you can, family, friends, community programs, whatever you can do". She's now on tour in support of the record.
"[It's] basically like a therapy session before the concerts", she said of her initiative.
Lovato recently invited "GMA" co-anchor Robin Roberts to give a motivational talk at one of the events and said she is "somebody that is so inspirational and I love her to death, so I'm very grateful that she's coming".More news: Kevin Pietersen announces retirement from professional cricket
