Lamar Odom Hires His Children To Work At His Substance Abuse Treatment Company
It’s turned into a family affair at Odom Recovery Group. NBA champion Lamar Odom’s substance abuse treatment company has been rapidly expanding with centers throughout Southern California. As Odom looks toward the future, he’s getting his two children involved in the family business.
The former Los Angeles Laker has hired his son Lamar Odom Jr. (LJ), 21, and daughter Destiny Odom, 25, to assist with marketing and client representation, TMZ reports. LJ has been shadowing his dad and learning the ins and outs of representing Odom Recovery Group as a marketing consultant while Destiny handles the client intake portion of taking down patients’ information and assisting with a smooth start to their recovery journeys.
Odom reportedly is using this as a way to bond with his children, who have lived with him full-time since May. His ex Liza, the mother of Destiny and LJ, has also gotten involved in working for the recovery group.
The NBA alumnus launched Odom Recovery Group earlier this year to aid those battling addiction. His centers “offer restoration through detox, inpatient facilities, outpatient programming & transitional supportive housing,” the website states.
“Lamar’s mission is to give back and allow all clients the ability to live and benefit from the same program that inspired his recovery.”
Odom has partnered with Restoration Recovery Center to open four facilities, Restoration Recovery in Sacramento, Compassions in Laguna Hills, Inner Minds Health in San Bernardino, and Vanity Wellness Center in Woodland Hills.
It’s all part of his mission to help combat substance abuse following his near-fatal overdose in 2015 that put him in a coma for months.
“He wants to help everyone he can,” Odom’s representative said, as reported by OK! Magazine.
“He is thankful that he was given a second chance at his life and feels his destiny is to help others.”
In July, Odom expanded his business portfolio and opened a senior care center company inspired by his grandmother.
