Apparently, things are not going that well for Lamar Odom. The star has just decided to check himself into rehab. The decision was made after Lamar officially became a single man. So, Lamar has decided to seek treatment for substance abuse. He has been admitted in a San Diego, California, facility.
The news was reported by E! News, which claimed that Lamar decided to voluntarily check himself into rehab as a precautionary measure. In this context, it is important to mention that Lamar has been in a near death experience last year. The star was found unconscious at a brothel in Crystal, Nevada. He managed to improve his health since that moment, but he had definitely dealt with some issues.
Now, it seems that Lamar is ready to seek treatment. The former basketball player is at a rehabilitation center in San Diego, California. “It was his own decision. He wanted to work on his mental and physical health for the next chapter of his life,” one insider said. “He has not fallen off the wagon, but he understands the importance of maintaining his sobriety,” the same source went on to add.
Another source told People that Lamar is actually undergoing treatment only as a precautionary measure. This insider also confirmed that the star admitted himself in the medical facility voluntarily. “Lamar checked into rehab a week ago. He plans to stay for 30 days. It’s a substance abuse program, but he was not abusing drugs when he went in. He is clean. This is a precautionary measure,” this source said.
The insider also explained that what Lamar wants is to finally be able to stay clear. It seems that what made him realize the importance of his wellbeing has actually been the finalization of his divorce from Khloe Kardashian. And Lamar has also received the support of his friends and family, which advised him to undergo the treatment.
“He wants to stay clear and focused. With the divorce from Khloe being finalized and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up. He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better,” the insider concluded.
