Dr. Drew, ‘Demi Lovato Is In Distress’

demilovatopurplebootsperfeft-89_0_0


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.’

    We need to stop caring why she’s in treatment. That can make things worse. WE need to stop focusing on what got her there and start focusing on sending her prayers, love, and support. That is all that matters! I love you Demi!

  • Danger-ous

    Wait, Dr. Drew didn’t mention Joe Jonas and his evil ways of life ruining. I’m confused, as I thought that’s why Demi is where she is today…

    You mean to tell me…there may have been deep seeded psychological issues pre-existent to him!?!?! Well, I never.

  • Srahx3

    Don’t like what Joe did to Demi :(:(,, but its not all his fault!! Just a little part,, well,, the part where he took ashley on tour and dating her right after they decided to be best friends again!! :)

    demi didnt go into treatment because one of her ex boyfriends brought his new girlfriend to a couple of shows on tour. she went to treatment because she has anorexia and she’s been cutting for years.

    No. He didn’t. If you don’t like him, be honest and say it, but quit trying to pin deep seeded psychological issues of another human being on him.

  • TraceSTAN

    There are reports that Demi sought treatment because she was the victim of bullying. Bullying isn’t a psychiatric diagnosis.

    No one thought that and there were no reports.

    The Dr Phil one was okay, but Dr Drew is an idiot.

  • EmmaLC

    Dr. Drew is an addictions specialist, but you hardly ever see him talking about addictions anymore. Like when he shows up on the Joy Behar Show or the ‘Teen Mom’ after show. Now he has to add in his two cents about Demi Lovato?

    Stick to what you have a degree in, Dr. D.

  • wavy

    well Dr.drew is an idiot…and shes there for anorexia but no one knows the whole story so we cant say shit!!..what we can do is just support and not focus on how she got there but focus on her getting out!!

  • Tick Tok

    You need to come to terms with reality darlin. The girl is sick and has some serious issues. She’s not away with the sniffles, she is in a lockdown facility with weeks and weeks of rigorous treatment ahead of her. There’s is nothing wrong with admitting weakness, even if it’s in someone you “idolize”.
    —————

    she’s an outpatient

  • Danger-ous

    With all due respect…some of you are morons. “Let’s not focus on what got her in there, let’s focus on her getting out”?

    You can’t put a Band Aid on a gunshot wound. You need to address the issue in order for it to get better.

    i was kidding! thats what ralph said!

  • sophieee

    demi’s bulimic and a cutter.
    which come from her emotional issues.

  • JBinsider

    Demi Cheated on Joe. She cheated on him with men and women (she thought Joe would like the idea of her with a girl, he did not). One of the people she cheated with is Wilmer Valderrama, who she is still seeing to this day. That is why Joe broke off the relationship. It was harder for Joe to tour with Demi than vice-versa, she was the one who hurt him.
    Demi has acted like a diva this entire tour, routinely threatening the jobs of her staff, partying to excess and BULLYING everyone who disagreed with her ways. She was removed from the tour because she was involved in illegal drug use and assaulting a female member of the tour. When discovering that Someone had alerted management to her drug use, she walked onto the charter airplane the group is using in south america and punched an unsuspecting backup dancer in the face as hard as she could when the dancer was not even looking. This was after she had threatened all of the dancers jobs in a closed door meeting backstage regarding “someone snitching on her”. Demi is NOT the victim in this story, Demi is the Villain.
