Demi Lovato has partnered with CAST Recovery to create The Lovato Treatment Scholarship in honor of her dad, Patrick Lovato, who passed away in part due to untreated mental health and addiction issues.
The Lovato Treatment Scholarship will cover expenses for someone struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues, including the costs for one of CAST’s transitional living homes as well as clinical services provided at CAST’s outpatient program. Demi has battled these issues throughout her life, and she understands what’s at stake. However, effective treatment is costly, and many can’t afford the care that they need.
Demi knows the CAST team well. She continues to work directly with them, and she trusts that CAST’s programs offer some of the best services available.
For those interested in applying for The Lovato Treatment Scholarship, please email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know who you are, your age, where you live, and why you are seeking help.
Demi and the CAST team wish that they could help everyone. While the scholarship will only be able to help one person at a time, Demi will continue to speak out on these issues and lend her voice to those in need.
For those who need immediate help and cannot afford treatment, please go to www.treatment4addiction.com for all of what SAMHSA’s database has to offer plus so much more.
