Following her hospitalization last week, a source told E! News that Lovato has been in a "downward spiral" in recent months.

"She had a sober coach who she cut out of her life a few months ago. She's been in a downward spiral ever since and has not been doing well," the insider shared. "She's been heavily using and her friends have been very worried that this was going to happen."

While another a second source told E! News, "Demi has been suffering her addiction disease for months now and has been spiraling."

Lovato, who has been very open about her struggles with drugs and alcohol, released a song last month called "Sober," about breaking sobriety.

"She made the decision to come out publicly about her relapse recently because she thought she could inspire her fans and it would help her keep on track, but she has been battling her own demons for months," the insider continued. "Demi has been trying to stay busy with her tour but she has definitely been having her ups and downs."

Another insider also shared with E! News that Lovato is "grateful to be alive" following the overdose.
