Demi Lovato

The Sober Living House

Is My Home!

Demi Lovato
is rich and famous, and can afford to live just about anywhere she wants ... but we've learned she's been living in a fairly spartan sober living facility for more than a year.

It's actually pretty awesome ... Demi does not want to fall back into the grip of addiction, where she found herself back in 2010, when she admitted she had problems with anorexia, bulimia and cutting.

After going to rehab, the 20-year-old seemed better, but ultimately felt she needed the support and guidance from counselors and other addicts who understood her situation.

Sources tell us ... shortly after her inpatient rehab, she moved into a facility in the L.A. area.  It's interesting ... considering she also owns a very nice home in L.A..

We're told during the entire season of "X Factor" Demi felt it was best to come home to the facility, where she wouldn't lose her way.

As for how long she'll stay there ... it's undetermined.

In a town with a lot of stars who never figure it out, it's pretty amazing when you see someone as young as her make such good decisions.

I think it's great she is being proactive about her health at such a young age. It's not surprising someone in her position would develop eating disorders ... especially when it's major news if a female singer or actress gains 10 pounds.

Good for her. She's still young at 20 and with a bit more maturity maybe something will click to where she feels strength within herself. In the meantime, I give her credit. Better to be her than Lohan.

Cowell sure knows how to pick 'em. The whole world knew that Britney Spears was a bore after witnessing 5 mins. of her reality show. Every word she said on X Craptor was scripted. She should retire instead of going through the constant battle of having to work off her In N Out burger value meals to prepare for a video and tour. It's Ova! Time to dust off the crack pipe.

wow that is so great. Congrats to her for taking herself seriously and putting her sobriety first. The steps she is taking now will insure her sobriety in days, months, years to come. I am really happy for her and i encourage her to keep up the good work . I have long term sobriety and lived in a half way house after my time at Betty Ford Center... it was part of a long process of recovery. I have an awesome sober life and so will she if she continues on this path. Keep going!

This girl...whats her name again? Regardless, she does this for more and nore attention. She does it to gain fans, people who pitty or feel sorry for her. Ryan Seacrest got her the job at Xfactory:she did not deserve it. Attention-seeking whales. They sell their "souls"(if such things exist) in exchange for fame (Miley and Bieber are doing the same thing but diferently). They all are sickening.

I think she'll be one that, whether her career in show business continues or not, she'll still have money in the bank and will still lead a good, happy life. She's one of the smart ones who knows how to ask for help (and by help, I mean asks for help in getting her back on track) when needed. Good job, Demi!

In Hollywood where drugs and booze flow like a river, how does anyone survive the tentacles of addiction to same? At least Demi realizes what lies ahead if she fails; lawyer, drug, and alcohol fees and a decent into hell. You GO Girl!
