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.

Good for her. It's a shame that her peers don't have the courage to do the same.

I've got to give Demi credit. She evidently knows herself quite well and wants to continue living a clean and sober life. Good for her. I hope her sobriety remains stable and that she is able to conquer whatever demons she felt/feels. I wish her all the luck in the world. She should be quite proud of herself.

wow, Demi you got a new fan here, proud of you! now all you have to do is leave Hollywood all together because that's a part of the problem. That entire town destroys people. you must be a very strong individual to be able to combat that, you don't see any other celebs doing what you are doing.

This girl is a joke. A no talent having drug user. SHe got lucky and got a shot at Disney. If not, she'd just be another homeless coke whore. Bet.

Demi, Good For You!. Takes allot of courage just to go into rehab. It takes even more to get sober. And even more to recognize your weakness. And yet even more willing to surround yourself with positive people who CARE ABOUT YOU, and not try to use you.

One day, second and minute at a time for many of us; but for those who don't believe it usually relapse. You got 100% of my support, not that it should mean anything except from one recovered to one recovering. Most of us are just one drink or drug away from being where we were before we went in. Good luck Demi.
