Demi Lovato is now the co-owner of the rehab clinic where she sought treatment for her depression, bulimia and substance abuse.
The singer bought a stake in the CAST Center in Los Angeles where she was once treated for various problems and she said it feels good to be in the position to now help others.
“I don’t know what it says, it just feels good,” she said.
Her manager, Phil McIntyre, agreed and praised the star’s move saying: “How many 24-year-olds own their own treatment centre?”
“To leverage her position in pop music to do so much good is just incredible.”
The “Confident” hitmaker also revealed that while she was receiving treatment at the center, she had been “a nightmare” for her caregivers.
“Yeah, I was a nightmare,” she said in an interview on Sunday Morning. “I would say the word that I want to say, but it’s so inappropriate that I can’t. And this will be on a Sunday morning, so I’m not going to say it!”
She is, however, grateful for the faith showed in her by CAST CEO Mike Bayer.
“Because of that. I’m now sitting here right now alive and more successful than I’ve ever been,” she said.
We wish her all the best on this worthy endeavor!
