Lamar Odom Enters Rehab for Substance Abuse

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Lamar Odom has finally admitted that he has a problem.

Following weeks of downward spiraling that included being kicked out of the home he shares with Khloe Kardashian and being arrested for DUI, the basketball star has reportedly checked into a rehab facility.

Details on the location and/or specialty of the treatment center have not been disclosed.

"He realized he needs help," a source tells People of Lamar's decision, which Khloe and other loved ones have been pushing for since mid-summer.

Earlier this week, an unnamed individual gave an interview in which he claimed to be Odom's drug dealer and detailed the celebrity's ongoing cocaine addiction.

Other reports have indicated that Odom has been excessively taking Ambien and Oxycontin.

The 32-year old also violated the NBA's drug policies twice in 2001 and admitted to serious marijuana use in a 2003 interview.

"I just couldn't control myself in L.A.... the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to," he said at the time.

Let's all hope this is the final step Lamar needs to get better.

UPDATE: Wait! TMZ now claims Odom is not in rehab after all.
