I'd like to see him check into a 90 day intensive inpatient rehab facility, then transfer to a sober living situation for the following 6 months, with a psychotherapist to focus on his trauma history to see him during and for several years after the programs.

This is what he needs.... And this still only works IF its voluntary. He's checking in now under the advice of his attorney to help with the DUI outcome.

These programs have fantastic outcomes when the person is motivated to get better. This has been a long slide down but I'm thinking the bottom is still below him...... Unfortunately.

You're exactly right. When do training camps start, 20 days or so? I'll be blindly optimistic that 20 days of rehab will be better than nothing and may get the ball rolling, but I'm no Pollyanna (just for you, Roos) about these things either.

LAMAR ODOM
NOT IN REHAB
EXCLUSIVE
Lamar Odom has NOT checked himself in to rehab ... sources connected to the NBAer tell TMZ.

There are reports out that Lamar checked himself in ... we've been making calls for the last day and just got what we're told is the definitive word ... he's not there.

Lamar has gone off the radar with the Kardashian family for the last few days. Khloe -- who has made it clear she will end the marriage if he doesn't get help -- has heard nothing from him.

If he didn't check in then he's not a patient and therefore, no privacy.

He's not a Laker anymore, and it looks like the recent rumors of the Lakers interest was just that.

LAMAR ODOM
I DON'T HAVE A CRACK PROBLEM


Lamar Odom says he's absolutely NOT a drug addict ... doesn't need professional help ... and is confident he'll play in the NBA next season.

He's wrong on all 3 counts.

33-year-old Odom went to Teru Sushi in Studio City last night ... and after taking some photos with fans, he finally addressed the media about drug issues in his life ... claiming everything is hunky-dory.

Problem is ... Odom is clearly in denial. As we've previously reported, just about everyone in his life -- personally and professionally -- knows about his battle with substance abuse, including his wife Khloe Kardashian.

In the last year alone, Lamar's been thrown out of hotels ... busted for DUI ... spent time in rehab ... and dropped from multiple NBA teams.

Still, Lamar insists ... "Life is good."

It's sad that odom is a still a disappointment not because of what he endured, but because he continues to dance around his problems.

Admitting you're a drug addict and getting help isn't a sign of weakness; on the contray, it's the opposite.

LO has finally said something

@RealLamarOdom: Seeing the snakes


He then went on to post a link to a longer rant, for the first time I've seen actually admitting this is a "dark time". He goes on to vent a lot and blame what I assume is his biological father, but in the end says he only has himself to blame, which is kinda odd and contradictory. Still, LO is clearly in a dark place and I keep hooping he comes out of it. His longer "tweet"

Won't continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.]. He wasn't there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me. For the first time since they left, came a blessing of a FAMILY that I married into. FAMILY. That man wasn't even invited to my wedding. He has never met my mother in law and some of my other family. How can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own "son". He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me. He disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return. They are the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time. Only person 2 blame is myself. Say what you want about me but leave the ones who have done nothing but protect and love me out of this! This goes to out to everyone!

Lamar Odom is holed up in a private home in a gated community 100 miles from L.A. ... and his life is now revolving around smoking crack and partying with 2 young women -- and he's intimate with one of them.

Multiple sources privy to Lamar's current state tell TMZ ... Lamar has a driver who is regularly shuttling back and forth from L.A. to his rental home with one purpose -- scoring drugs, including crack.

We're told Lamar is so paranoid ... he insists the driver only buy small quantities of crack at a time, so as not to draw too much attention to him -- and that means frequent trips to score the drug.

Lamar almost never leaves the home. He's smoking crack and partying with the 2 women, both in their early 20s. His life now revolves around smoking crack and listening to rap music.

Our sources say Lamar is extremely paranoid about getting caught. He believes people -- not the 2 girls -- are watching him so he's using a phone app that allows him to text people but the texts are automatically deleted once the texts are read. The app also notifies Lamar if they try and screenshot the message.

Lamar's best friend is also staying at the house.

We're told Lamar has been living in 3 different residences in the last 2 months -- partly because he feels if he stays on the move he won't get caught.

As for Khloe ... we're told Lamar isn't worried that she'll leave him. He says he knows she loves him and has stood by him throughout the entire drug saga so he's convinced she won't abandon him now.

Because he was clean for that drugs test does not mean that he's been or continues to be clean. If it was just your standard urine test, then it would be possible to clean up for a week or two and show negative results for most drugs. I know marjuana is a bit different because THC is stored in fast therefore staying in your system longer. I know cocaine stays in your system for a relatively short time...

If he's clean, then that's great. I still think he's been abusing drugs recently.
