Demi Lovato is agreeing to go to treatment after her terrifying drug overdose on Tuesday — but she will definitely not be getting help in Los Angeles, can exclusively report.

A source told Radar the troubled singer, 25, faces too many "triggers" — recovery speak for temptation — in her home city, and her loved ones wants to get her far, far away from all the action.

"She won't be going to a rehab where she would receive a lot of attention," the source explained.

Lovato previously underwent treatment at Timberline Knolls in Illinois after she punched a backup dancer in 2010.

As Radar exclusively reported, the star told her family she's willing to go back to rehab, months after she first relapsed on drugs and alcohol.

She admitted her relapse after six years of recovery in her new song "Sober" last month.

The night before she overdosed, a source told Radar that Lovato drank vodka sodas at the Saddle Ranch in Hollywood for a friend's birthday.
