Staying Strong : DMX Checks Into Rehab BEFORE Relapsing

DMX took it upon himself to go to rehab before he relapsed on drugs.

via TMZ:

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ … one of X’s kids is very sick — in and out of the hospital — and the stress of that coupled with the pressure of performing again made him feel tempted to use.

We’re told X knew he needed help trying to balance his home and work life without the use of drugs, so he preemptively checked himself into rehab — hoping to learn how to deal with his issues moving forward.

Our sources say he knows a relapse could jeopardize his freedom, and wants to stay out of jail so he can support his family and friends — while still performing for his fans.

DMX is on probation and gets tested randomly for drugs and alcohol … so another failed test could result in him back behind bars.

I love me some X. . He can do this. Im here for the proactivity and dedication to staying clean
