While Demi Lovato rides the road to recovery in treatment for what her rep called "emotional and physical issues," the star's TV vehicle is being realigned.

The Disney Channel and producers of her 'tween series Sonny with a Chance have decided on a temporary adjustment – allowing the spotlight to fall on the popular show within the show, So Random!.

This switch enables the production's third season to resume in January as scheduled and "allows [Demi] the time she needs to get well, without distraction or pressure," a Disney Channel spokeswoman tells Variety. "Again, we extend our ongoing support to Demi and her family as she works to overcome personal issues."

At the end of last month, Lovato, 18, dropped out of the Jonas Brothers tour and "decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help," her rep told PEOPLE. "She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."
