The 33-year-old basketball player who is believed to have had a short spell at a treatment centre early last month to get help for his alleged crack cocaine problem is said to have been clean for five days now and thinks he can maintain his sobriety without attending a clinic.
According to gossip website TMZ, sources close to the star say that Lamar believes in ''self-healing'' and is hoping to overcome his problems through his own willpower as he has done it successfully before.
Lamar is willing to consider professional help but refuses to do so through rehab centres, preferring private measures.
In addition, he is cutting out certain ''friends'' who he thinks may be a bad influence to make sure he does not relapse.
