The 26-year-old star — who first went to rehab at 18 — spends time kickboxing, eating healthy and “surrounding herself with supportive people” like ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, who’s been her rock during this difficult time.

The “Sober” singer was found unconscious after a drug overdose at her home in Hollywood last year. She remained hospitalized for almost two weeks before checking into a treatment center. “The rehab she is in is much more drill sergeant-esque,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively in August. “It’s not nurturing. … That’s not what Demi needs to put her in check.”
