Lamar Odom has checked himself into a rehabilitation center for the abuse of drugs and alcohol, according to a report citing two sources.

"He realized he needs help," one source said of Odom.

Odom's drug and alcohol issues reportedly created issues in his marriage and have also appeared to impact his status as a free agent. Odom was arrested for DUI last week.

"I just couldn't control myself in L.A. ... the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to," Odom said in 2003, two years after violating the NBA's drug policy twice in eight months

Odom's father struggled with heroin addiction, and Odom once wondered if he was "fighting my father's demons."
