And now, as the "Sober" singer, 25, continues on her world tour, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned she has taken small steps to get help by reaching out to some of her old friends in recovery.
"Demi reached out to some of sober friends this weekend, but she hasn't made any set plans to sober up just yet," a source close to Lovato said.
According to the insider, Lovato — who is currently in a nasty battle over branding with her former rehab CAST Recovery and her former sober coach, Mike Bayer — "was dishonest with everyone prior to her relapse reveal."
"Everyone is hoping that her relapse reveal is a cry for help. It is nothing to be ashamed over. She slipped and it is never too late to get back on track," the insider said.
"All of Demi's close friends and family are extremely worried right now because they know that she is on a downward spiral. They just all want her to come back to L.A. and get the help she needs before it is too late."
