Odom voluntarily checked himself into a facility in San Diego in early December. The 37-year-old reportedly “wanted to work on his mental and physical health for the next chapter of his life,” according to E! News. (RELATED: Lamar Odom Checks Into Rehab Again)

Odom also feared he may fall off the wagon again as the birthday of his late son Jayden, who died from SIDS, approached. Jayden was born on Dec. 15, 2005 and died a few months later, allegedly leading to Odom’s initial drug abuse, according to TMZ.

Other reports claimed that what would have been Jayden’s 11th birthday and his now-finalized divorce with Khloé Kardashian was what made Odom fear he would use drugs again. (RELATED: Here’s Why Lamar Odom Checked Back Into Rehab)
