Demi Lovato is reportedly planning on entering rehab after being released from the Los Angeles hospital where she has been receiving treatment since her Tuesday drug overdose, Page Six reports.

Lovato was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday morning after her suspected overdose. A source told People later on Tuesday that Lovato is “okay and stable,” and a representative for Lovato confirmed in a statement that the singer was awake and alert.

Here, everything we know about Lovato’s suspected overdose. We will continually update this post as new information becomes available.

Lovato reportedly overdosed at her Hollywood Hills home.

The Los Angeles Police Department told People in a statement that they responded to a medical emergency at Lovato’s Hollywood Hills home on Tuesday just before noon. They would not confirm the identity of the patient, but a representative for the Los Angeles Fire Department said they “transported a 25-year-old female patient to a local hospital.” TMZ reports that Lovato was unconsciouswhen paramedics arrived.

Her friends revived her with Narcan, an emergency drug that can reverse narcotics overdoses.

Law-enforcement sources initially told TMZ that Lovato overdosed on heroin, though a source close to Lovato later stated that was not the case. The singer has been open about struggling with cocaine and Oxycontin abuse in the past, and was reportedly treated at the scene with Narcan, which is an emergency medication used to reverse an opioid overdose. Her “friends” reportedly administered the medication themselves to revive her.

She was reportedly on a “binger” with friends the night before — and they had “Narcan on hand” just in case.

A source told People on Wednesday that those close to Lovato had a “strong suspicion” something like this may end up happening. On Monday night, she was reportedly partyingwith friends at a birthday party in West Hollywood.

The insider said, “She and her ‘friends’ were on a binger the entire night. They keep Narcan on hand for such situations — they were prepared for this. The people she has been hanging around lately aren’t her real friends — they don’t have her best interests at heart. She’s pushed her true friends away.”

Those closest to Lovato had been trying to keep her away from drugs.

People reports that Lovato “had to find creative and sneaky ways to get drugs” as her team and the people closest with her “really try to keep a close watch on her.”

Lovato has been open about her battle with addiction.

Lovato has spoken extensively about her struggles with substance abuse, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders. She previously underwent treatment in 2011 but relapsed after leaving the treatment facility. Lovato then entered a sober-living facility for a year. The singer celebrated six years of sobriety last March.

However, in June, she released a new single, “Sober,” in which she announced that she relapsed following six years of sobriety. She sings in the ballad, “Momma I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / And Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor / To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober.”

She had reportedly been struggling in recent months.

According to People, Lovato had been going through a difficult time for a while. A “close source” told the magazine, “Things have been a total mess for months. She and her team severed ties, and they played a large part in getting her sober years ago. She hasn’t been in a good place.”

Lovato is reportedly heading back to rehab.

On Wednesday, a source told E! News, “This is obviously a huge wake-up call. Demi doesn’t want to die and she’s very grateful to be alive. She will be leaving the hospital and heading straight to rehab. Her family has been by her side supporting her and is getting her the help she needs.”

She has received an outpouring of support from her celebrity friends.

Many of Lovato’s celebrity friends have spoken out in support of the singer since news of her suspected overdose broke. Her ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas took to social media to share his support:
