Demi Lovato has opened up about her nearly fatal 2018 overdose in recent years, but the singer-songwriter will be even more candid about it in an upcoming YouTube docuseries titled Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil. While the four-part series is set to premiere on March 23, ET got an exclusive look at the footage, and it includes a clip about Demi's current relationship with her sobriety.
Although reports up to this point have not made it clear exactly what caused Demi's overdose, the singer has struggled with cocaine addiction, and in the trailer for the docuseries there are several mentions of heroin. Reports do confirm that Demi was given Narcan, which is used to counter the affects of opioids. In the trailer, Demi explained exactly what happened to her body that night: "I had three strokes, I had a heart attack, my doctors said that I had five-to-10 more minutes," you can hear her explain in a voiceover.
The docuseries ends on a surprising note, ET writes, with Demi explaining that she is no longer completely sober and still drinks alcohol and smokes marijuana in "moderation." "I know I'm done with the stuff that's going to kill me, right? Telling myself that I can never have a drink or smoke marijuana, I feel like that's setting myself up for failure because I am such a black-and-white thinker," she says in the docuseries, according to the outlet.
Demi emphasizes that her version of sobriety is not right for anyone else with addiction. "I also don't want people to hear that and think that they can go out and try having a drink or smoking a joint, you know? Because it isn't for everybody. Recovery isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. You shouldn't be forced to get sober if you're not ready. You shouldn't get sober for other people. You have to do it for yourself," she said.
