He can beat addiction without rehab...
TMZ reports that Lamar Odom has claimed he has been sober for five days and can beat his addiction to crack without going to rehab. He believes in "self-healing" and thinks he has the strength to beat his problem on his own. He has said he did this before and he can do it again, by himself.
He is telling others that he is removing "friends" from his life so he doesn't relapse. While he's open to getting professional help, he wants it done in private and not at a rehab facility. However, he has yet to get any kind of help at all. He is aware that the NBA training camp has started. While he wants to save his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, his motivation for getting sober seems to be his basketball career. He thinks that once he's clean, he can join a team and play.
Odom had a crack problem and an addiction to other drugs (like cocaine). He was in rehab for three weeks a little over a year ago before he left.
