"We just need to get somebody out here."

CNN has acquired a seemingly redacted recording of a 911 call related to Lovato's emergency.

The male 911 operator on the recording is heard gathering information and asks the female caller if she's with "the patient."

"I was, I'm downstairs. There are other people [who] went in," the unidentified caller can be heard saying. "We just need to get somebody out here."

Seemingly out of a desire for privacy, the caller tells the dispatcher, "Wait, no sirens please, right?"

"No, no, this is a medical emergency. I don't have control over that," the dispatcher responds. "This is definitely a medical emergency and we need to get there as fast as possible."

Lovato has been open over the years about her struggles with sobriety.
