She gave an update about Demi's current condition, adding that she had Demi's blessing to do the interview.
With opioid overdoses, things can worsen with time but thankfully, Demi was able to recover. "I just feel like the reason she's alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day when everybody found out what was happening. I don't think she would be here if it wasn't for those prayers and the good doctors at Cedars Sinai, they were the best. I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to save her life," she said. "I can honestly say today she's doing really well. She's happy, she's healthy, she's working on her sobriety. She's getting the help she needs and that in itself encourages me about her future and about the future of our family."
After the incident, Dianna is now an "accidental spokesperson" for other parents dealing with similar issues.
"You don't see it coming and that's the scary thing. The opioid crisis in America is at an epidemic level and people don't understand that until they start researching it," she said. "After this happened, I started researching and looking into how opioids are killing our kids and it's happening every 15 minutes someone dies of an overdose. And it's not just the kids either."
The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer was hospitalized in July after paramedics were called when she was found unconscious in her home. She was released from the hospital on August 4 after a few weeks, and was taken straight to a rehab facility. The following day she released a lengthy statement in which she opened up about her journey with addiction and promised her fans that she would keep fighting.
