Demi Lovato has partnered with CAST Recovery to create The Lovato Scholarship in honor of her father, Patrick Lovato, who passed away in part due to untreated mental health and addiction issues.
The Lovato Scholarship covers expenses for individuals struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues, including the costs of CAST’s Transitional Living and clinical services provided through CAST’s Outpatient Program. Demi has battled these issues throughout her life, and she understands what is at stake. However, effective treatment is costly, and many can’t afford the care that they need.
Demi knows the CAST team well, and she continues to work directly with the team. She trusts everyone involved, and she knows that the services provided at CAST are some of the best available.
Demi and the CAST team wish that they could help everyone. While the scholarship can only directly help a small percentage of people, Demi is committed to continuing 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.samhsa.gov for all of what SAMHSA’s database has to offer.
