Ahead of her upcoming documentary, 28-year-old Lovato got candid about her relapse, overdose, and ongoing recovery process on "CBS Sunday Morning." "Dancing with the Devil," which debuted at SXSW last week, details the events that led to her near-fatal heroin overdose in 2018.

At the time, Lovato was discovered unconscious inside her home and transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. She suffered a heart attack, three strokes, and woke up in the hospital temporarily legally blind

Lovato told CBS's Tracy Smith complete abstinence was difficult for her and she's since used moderation. 

"The term that I best identify with is California sober," Lovato said. 

"California sober" typically refers to people who abstain from alcohol and most drugs but may indulge in marijuana, as described in features from The Cut and Vice.

Lovato had previously been sober for six years, which she detailed in the 2017 documentary, "Simply Complicated."  

In her new documentary, Lovato said she mixed meth, molly, cocaine, marijuana, and Oxycontin the first night she relapsed in 2018.

She also revealed that she was "miserable" before she overdosed and did not control certain aspects of her everyday life during that time.  

Lovato added that she shoulders the responsibility for her behavior and actions. 

How brave do you think Demi is for opening up with something so personal but yet important for her fans?
