The internet has been buzzing the past few days ever since singer Demi Lovato is in rehab because of issues with an eating disorder and with cutting. With everyone busy asking questions as to the true reason that Demi Lovato is in rehab, there is new speculation that Demi Lovato may not be in rehab at all.
When you think of rehab, you traditionally picture someone like Demi Lovato checking into a rehab facility, where they stay until they successfully complete the program.
People who are treated for eating disorders and for cutting are typically part of an outpatient therapy program. If this is true, then is Demi Lovato really in rehab at all?
Outpatient programs let participants live at home while they go through their therapy sessions, though they do visit the facility to meet with experts, including doctors, nutritionists, and social workers.
Whether Demi Lovato is in rehab or in an outpatient program, we wish her the best with her recovery.
