In an interview with The New York Times, who watched the series ahead of its release, it is revealed that the singer was sexually assaulted by the drug dealer who then left her for dead.
Journalist Caryn Ganz, who interviewed the ex-Disney star for the piece, wrote: “The drug dealer who brought her heroin that night sexually assaulted her, then left her close to death.”

“I had so much to say over the past two years, wanting to set the record straight about what it was that happened.
“Any time that you suppress a part of yourself, it’s gonna overflow,” she says in the trailer for her latest project.
She then opens up about the severity of her health issues: “I had crossed a line that I had never crossed before … I snapped. I had three strokes.
“I had a heart attack. My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes [to live].”

Demi‘s current sobriety is also a topic of conversation, and when she’s asked if she is “entirely sober now,” she simply just looks straight at the camera.
The star recently revealed in an interview that she still uses “alcohol and marijuana” with “balance.”
In an interview with Glamour for their March edition, the ex-Disney star said that balance has helped her eating disorder and she doesn’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” solution to recovery.
Discussing how she broached the subject with her team, Demi told the publication: “I called [my recovery case manager, Charles Cook] and was like, ‘Something’s not right. I’m living one side of my life completely legalizing [balance] and this other side following a program that’s telling me if I slip up, I’m going to die.’”

When Cook asked how she wanted to proceed, the pop star said: “I think I want to try this balance thing in the substance side of my life too.”
While Demi’s management company were naturally concerned, they supported the actress with her decision.
She revealed: “…they were like, ‘She deserves this opportunity to make that choice for herself.’ So I did.
“A one-size-fits-all solution does not work for everybody,” she continued. “What I’m encouraging people to do is just make choices for themselves.

“Autonomy, for me, is what changed my life.”
The raven haired beauty recognizes that her approach towards healing isn’t for everyone.
Demi adds: “What I’m encouraging people to do is just make choices for themselves.”
