Demi Lovato‘s father, from whom she became estranged due to his addiction issues for many years, passed away earlier this month and now she’s launching a treatment scholarship in his name. The scholarship will pay for a person to receive treatment at Cast Recovery. Below, her tweets announcing the scholarship:

And from Cast Recovery’s website:

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.

Demi has battled these issues throughout her life, and she understands what’s at stake. At the same time, effective treatment is costly, and many can’t afford the care they need.

The Lovato Treatment Scholarship will cover expenses for someone struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues, including the costs for one of CAST Recovery’s transitional living homes, as well as the clinical services provided at CAST’s outpatient program.

Demi knows the CAST Recovery team well. She continues to work with them directly, and trusts that their programs offer some of the best services available.

Can’t argue with that – what a great way of turning a negative into a positive. This could definitely help people in need.
