It has been a long journey for Lamar Odom, who reportedly just checked himself into rehab voluntarily.

The former NBA player has checked into a rehab facility near San Diego.

US Weekly reports that he did not suffer a relapse but asked decided to get a “fresh start for the New Year.”

Reports say he will undergo treatment for chemical dependence.

“He wants to stay clear and focused. With the divorce from Khloe (Kardashian) being finalized and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up,” a source told People. “He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better. His friends and family encouraged him to go in and he agreed and made the decision.”

The ex couple was officially granted divorce on Friday and their marriage will be terminated on December 17.

Back in 2015, Odom nearly died after a 3-day long binge filled with a mixture of cocaine and sexual performance enhancement substances.

He was found unresponsive in a brothel and rushed to a hospital where he was placed in a  medically-induced come and underwent months of therapy.

We’re wishing him a speedy recover.
