As you've no doubt heard by now, Demi Lovato suffered an overdose that resulted in the singer being hospitalized on Tuesday.

Sources say she's now in stable condition and recovering in the presence of her family.

Many in Hollywood have reached out to Demi via social media to offer words of encouragement and support.

Jenelle Evans is one such star, but her message to Demi was more poignant than most.

If you're a Teen Mom 2 fan, then you're probably aware that Jenelle has also struggled with addiction throughout much of her life.

In the wake of yesterday's frightening news, Jenelle took to Twitter to offer a very personal message of hope:

"If you need help or support in time of immediate need, please seek it," Evans tweeted.

"Hearing this news about @ddlovato breaks my heart. I hope she’s okay. You’re strong girl, don’t let the devil drag you down."

For all of her many faults -- and those faults are profound and plentiful, to be sure -- Jenelle deserves credit for being so open about her past struggles with addiction in recent years.

She revealed the depth of her struggles in a recent memoir:

"I won't glamorize the drug by going into the long details of why people love it so damned much," Jenelle wrote.

"Before I knew it, I was shooting up four or five times a day. I was hooked." She continued, "The first thing I lost to the drug was my family." 

Jenelle and Demi are about the same age; they both found fame while still in their teens; and they've both struggled with addiction and emotional issues during their years in the spotlight.

So while they may seem like unlikely bedfellows, Jenelle can probably relate to Demi's plight more than just about everyone.

Demi's story is a familiar one, but sadly, many of the celebrities who have traveled down her current path didn't live long enough to turn things around.

So while it's hard to imagine Jenelle being a source of inspiration to anyone, she may be just the sort of role model Demi needs.

Fortunately, reps for Lovato say she's currently and ready to begin the long and painful process of recovery:

"She is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support," says one insider.

We wish Demi and her family all the best during this incredibly difficult time.
