Demi Lovato‘s decision to leave Jonas Brothers Tour for treatment was ‘a crisis situation,’ professional Dr. Drew Pinsky told Radar: ‘This was obviously an acute situation that sounds like she is clearly in distress. For Demi to be admitted to a treatment center, she had to meet certain criteria, whether it’s psychiatric or..
substance abuse, or both. There are reports Demi sought treatment because she was the victim of bullying. Bullying isn’t a psychiatric diagnosis. Bullying is very, very serious and it could have led her to have issues with food, but she couldn’t have been admitted to a treatment center because of that. Bullying isn’t a diagnosis. For her to recognize that she is in trouble, really in a crisis state,
To voluntarily check into a treatment center is so brave of her to do I have tremendous admiration for her. Demi is clearly trying to do the best thing for herself, and that is always a very good sign for her long term prognosis. Work can gratify Demi. Yet, the pressures of work could add undo stress to her. This is the biggest problem that celebrities encounter after seeking treatment.
They live in such a superficial world, and that can be a trigger for someone like Demi, who is so young, and if she is dealing with body issues, well, it can lead to undesirable consequences. Demi needs to listen very carefully to her treatment team and follow their advice. I truly wish her only the best and hopefully she can move on from this and grow from it.’
