Lamar Odom: Sober, Choosing "Self-Healing" Over Rehab

by at .

Rehab, shmeehab.

So apparently sums up Lamar Odom's take on recovering from his substance abuse problem, as sources tell TMZ the reality star has been clean and sober for five days - and doesn't think he needs any professional help to remain that way.

Friends of Odom say he's all about "self-healing," claiming he possesses the will power to kick his drug habit once and for all.

Perhaps this is why Lamar thinks he'll play in the NBA this season.

Odom is very much against checking into any kind of facility and is instead focusing on the removal of certain bad influences from his life.

In order to save his marriage to Khloe Kardashian? Sure, that would be nice.

But this insider says Lamar is more focused on the start of NBA training camp and getting sober so he can suit up at some point in the near future.

Lamar did attempt rehab earlier this summer, but he lasted there for a total of one day before fleeing. Numerous reports have connected him with a variety of drugs, from Oxycontin to Ecstasy to crack and pure cocaine.

Whatever path Odom chooses to take, for the sake of all involved, let's hope he does find a way to clean himself up.
