Singer Demi Lo­vato has reached 90 days of so­bri­ety, ac­cord­ing to her mother Dianna De La Garza.

The singer has been in re­hab since be­ing hos­pi­talised for an ap­par­ent drug over­dose in July.

“She has 90 days,” Garza said in an in­ter­view on a ra­dio show, ac­cord­ing to “The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter.”

“I couldn’t be more thank­ful or more proud of her be­cause ad­dic­tion be­ing a dis­ease, it’s work. It’s very hard. It’s not easy, and there are no short­cuts,” she said.

Garza said she isn’t sure what led to her daugh­ter’s re­lapse. “I knew that she wasn’t sober,” she said of Lo­vato, who apol­o­gised for no longer be­ing sober in her bal­lad “Sober”, re­leased in June.

“I didn’t know what she was do­ing be­cause she doesn’t live with me and she’s 26.”

She re­counted the “night­mare” she went through when she heard about Lo­vato’s “over­dose” via a text mes­sage.
