Disney starlet Demi Lovato entered rehab for the eating disorder she was suffering from after her parents staged an intervention.
She said, “I basically had a nervous breakdown. I was really bad off. My parents and manager pulled me aside and said, ‘You need to get some help.’ It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from the inner demons. I wanted to start my life over.”
She says that young people should always confide in their close friends for help in dealing with their issues. She said, “If you going through that dark period, go to your family and closest friends. Don’t put yourself in danger. It’s very crucial that you get your feelings out – but don’t ever inflict harm on your body because your body is so sacred.”
She added, “I wish I could tell every young girl with an eating disorder, or who has harmed herself in any way, that she’s worthy of life and that her life has meaning. You can overcome and get through anything.”
