Demis mum Dianne De La Garza appeared on Maria Menounos Sirius XM show where she discussed the 26-year-olds recovery.

Um, but weve been through a lot together and every single time, I mean if you read my mums book you would know.

Every time we go through something, we always come out on the other side a hundred times stronger than before. And so weve been so thankful for everything. For the little things.

Following her overdose, Demi wrote a note on social media for her fans.

She said: I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What Ive 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.
