Demi Lovato has been taken to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering an apparent overdose, according to a report from TMZ.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the singer and actress was treated at her home in Hollywood with Narcan, used to treat narcotics overdoses, then rushed to the hospital before noon on Tuesday. According to People and Variety sources, she is now in “stable” condition after initially being found unconscious at home.

A source later told TMZ that Lovato had not overdosed on heroin, as was previously reported. Despite saying that it wasn’t heroin, the source did not mention another drug.

“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support,” Lovato’s rep told Variety in a statement. “Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”

Lovato has long been open about her struggle with substance abuse. In June, the 25-year-old released a single called “Sober” in which she revealed she had relapsed after six years of sobriety. “Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore/And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sings over somber piano. “And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again/I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.” Lovato finished the song by pledging to get help: “I’m sorry that I’m here again/I promise I’ll get help/It wasn’t my intention/I’m sorry to myself.”
