DMX: Check-in to Rehab to Avoid Relapse

We’re learning about what led up to DMX’s recent rehab check-in.

X didn’t relapse, but feared he was at risk to go back to his old ways. He was triggered by the stress of a sick child who has been in and out of the hospital, and the pressure of performing again. Instead of making a choice he would regret later, DMX knew he needed to seek help.

Don’t forget, he’s still technically on probation and gets randomly tested for drugs and alcohol. One slip-up could send him back behind bars. (TMZ)

Hot Takes:

  • We’re proud of X for making the right call.
  • As he gets older, he’s developing new tools to fight the demons he’s been battling his entire life.
  • Keep your head up, X. It won’t always be easy but know you have a lot of love and support in the universe.
  • He knows himself well enough to know when his thoughts are going to a dark place.
