Lamar Odom is out of rehab.

Khloé Kardashian’s ex-husband checked out of a treatment center on Thursday (Jan. 5, 2016), according to People. The former NBA star reportedly headed back to his home in Los Angeles after a one-month stint for substance abuse.

“He’s doing great and he’s happy. He’s heading home to LA. He has the support of friends and family and his kids visited him last week,” a source told the publication.

As previously reported, Odom sought treatment to his addiction problem in December after suffering a near-fatal overdose the year before. In his first interview since the incident, the 37-year-old said he doesn’t remember anything about his hospitalization, explaining that he can only recall “being at that brothel and thinking I was going to just rest a little bit.”

“I didn’t know until Khloé had told me that I was in a coma,” he confessed. “I couldn’t even speak at the time. I couldn’t talk. Nothing would come out when I would open my mouth, so I was scared.”

During his time in rehab, Odom finalized his divorce with Kardashian. According to him, he was having problems with the reality star when he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel in 2015.

“I wasn’t in a good place mentally, especially mentally before that incident happened,” he explained. “Me and my wife at the time were going through some things. I was in a dark place. They say everything happens for a reason, so I guess the reason is I’m here and I can tell the story.”
