Demi Lovato's family is convincing her to check into rehab again after she leaves the hospital. The "Sober" singer was rushed to the facility after an apparent heroin overdose.

A source close to Lovato's family also said that they have looked into the various options that they have. However, the singer has not yet agreed to get help at a facility. In March, Lovato celebrated her sixth year being sober.

"After an overdose, it's encouraged to head straight to rehab. If the person is allowed to return home first, it's harder to commit to rehab," said the source.

"I really wouldn't be alive today without him. I love you, Wilmer," wrote Lovato.
