Lamar Odom has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, less than a week after his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence, People first reported.

“He realized he needs help,” a source told the magazine.

The NBA free agent was arrested early Friday morning after being stopped in Los Angeles showing “objective signs of intoxications,” police reported.

Mr. Odom entered a plea and was released on $15,000 bond.

The and “Khloe & Lamar” star has admitted to drug use in the past and has recently become addiction to crack, TMZ reported. He violated NBA drug policies twice in eight months back in 2001.

His wife, reality star Khloe Kardashian, reportedly issued an ultimatum to Mr. Odom over the weekend that it was it was rehab or divorce, TMZ said. People doesn’t specify where or when he checked in, but he was seen out in public as late as Saturday, TMZ reported.

Mr. Odom is currently unsigned but had been drawing interest from the Lakers, as well as the L.A. Clippers, where he finished last season, ABC News reported.
