Lamar Odom says he doesn’t need rehab to kick his drug habit and that he’s been sober for five days.
Sources connected to the troubled BBaller tell TMZ … Lamar believes in what he calls “self-healing” and says he has the willpower to kick his drug habit on his own.
Lamar says he’s done it successfully before and is convinced he can do it again.
Toward that end, he is telling people he is removing certain “friends” from his life … so he doesn’t relapse.
Lamar says he’s open to getting professional help, but only in private and not in a rehab facility. He has not yet committed to getting such help.
Sources say that Odom’s motivation is reviving his basketball career. He’s confident that once sober he will be able to play again.
