Dennis Rodman Rehab

After being recently released from the Reality TV show, “The Celebrity Apprentice,” it seems that Dennis Rodman is heading back to drug rehab once again.  According to eonline.com, Rodman will be entering into a treatment center for recovery.  However, this isn’t a first for the former NBA star.  Rodman has fought addiction for years and been through various in-patient rehab facilities during the process.  This time, reportedly, Rodman will be seeing an addiction counselor regularly as part of an outpatient program.

Nonetheless, eonline.com is now reporting that midst rehab talk, Rodman has yet to commit.  According to the online publication, “last week family and friends of Rodman…unsuccessfully reached out to the star, who refused to admit himself to an inpatient facility.”  The E channel also reported, during their news program E! News, that Rodman’s rep told them friends and family, “tried an intervention, but unfortunately Dennis refused to go,” adding, “We all know how amazing he is when sober, and we hope he gets there soon.”  Rodman’s rep told eonline.com that Rodman has yet to enter the program because he is hoping to attend “The Celebrity Apprentice” reunion show.

Dennis Rodman played in the NBA from 1986–2000.  He was drafted in the second round (27) from Southeastern Oklahoma State by the Detroit Pistons.  Over the years, Rodman played for: the Detroit Pistons (1986–1993); the San Antonio Spurs (1993–1995); the Chicago Bulls (1995-1998); the Los Angeles Lakers (1999); and finished his career with the Dallas Mavericks in 2000.  Dennis Rodman’s career stats include a total of 6,683 Points, an astounding 11, 954 Rebounds and 1,600 Assists.  His career highlights include: five NBA Championship appearances (1989, 1990, 1996, 1997, 1998); two NBA All-Star appearances (1990, 1992); two consecutive NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards in 1990 and 1991; and six consecutive NBA Rebounding Champion awards (1992–1998).  We wish him the best and hope he gets help soon to make a successful recovery.

  1. Have you ever seen him on that show? Rodman can’t even form a sentence. I can’t decide if it’s because he’s a dumb jock or just wacked out on drugs… considering all the ink and holes on his body, i think it’s a little of both
