Demi Lovato

The Sober Living House

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.

Its so easy to hide behind a screen and call Demi a "whale" right? but its not easy for Demi.She reads these sites and it hurts her which make you a irrevelent cyberbully.She is NOT fat.She is NOT ugly. Her career is NOT over. its just beggining. Demi's desicion to do this, is amazing. she is staying strong and being a good idol to her fans who have the same struggles. While youre sitting behind your screen being a delousional and dick,Demi is being a MILLION TRILLION BILLION times more sucsessful than you will ever be. so i dont know how many times i have to say this but,you all need SERIOUS help. instead of insulting Demi,learn something from her. you guys need it.

Compare the comments from this article where Demi is being mocked for seeking and accepting help for her addiction to the comments from the Lindsay Lohan articles where she is being mocked for NOT seeking an accepting help. Can't have it both ways, folks. Good for you, Demi. You're doing a great thing for your personal well being and your career.

It's really to say not to do.something of you have never had the problem to begin with. Millions of people suffer from disorders and diseases and the fact that Demi, at such a young age, can realize she can't do it alone right now and keeps that support system is amazing. many young girls look up to her and she is saying that people make mistakes but can learn and bounce back from them. get off her back people...she is doing that best she can.

I think it is wonderful that Demi Lovato is so together with her life now! I think she should definitely remain on the X-factor, she is a great judge and role model. However, I think it is great that Brittney Spears is not coming back. like Simon said she is a "Wierd" one! Also, I don't know what happened to her looks! She used to be kind of cute but now she is just "UGLY"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think sober living homes have helped a lot of celebrities in the past it just wasn't made public and I give her props for what she is doing. City of LA is trying to to close down sober living homes in affluent areas of LA check it out right here at http://bairdwhitfieldsoberservices.blogspot.com/sober-living-homes-at-war-with-los.html
