DEMI Lovato is “grateful to be alive”.
The 25-year-old singer has been celebrating five years of sobriety this year, and has said she’s thankful that she was able to come out the other side of her addiction battle to work with the CAST treatment centre she co-owns, in order to “help people” who are in a similar situation as she was.
She said: “Sometimes I just look back and I’m just grateful to be alive. I’m grateful that CAST centres came into my life. CAST is a treatment centre that I co-own with Mike Bayer and we, together, are able to help other people which, in turn, makes me feel really great.
“And I’m able to look at what I’ve done and I do kind of like sit there and think, ‘Wow, I’m so glad that I got sober and I’m able to help people.’”
And the ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ hitmaker isn’t just helping people struggling with addiction, as she recently paid a visit to Houston, Texas, to lend a helping hand to the victims affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Speaking about the charity work to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, she said: “It was emotional being there, but I also had Kevin Hart and Chris Paul there, and Kevin Hart is so funny so he was the comedic relief, but I had fun. It was great working with children.” – BANG!
