Dennis Rodman calls sobriety a ‘struggle’

Posted on 08 March 2018

Dennis Rodman is doing well following a stint in rehab but admitted that staying sober is a “struggle.”

“I feel great, man,” Rodman told TMZ following his second Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. “It’s kind of weird not to have a cocktail on a beautiful day in California but like I said, it’s just one day at a time.”

Rodman, 56, checked into Turning Point Rehabilitation Center in New Jersey in January following a DUI arrest. The former NBA star said his experience was an “eye-opener” and that he’s learning to take it “one day at a time.”

“It’s a struggle,” he said, adding that he’s trying “to succeed and hope I can beat it.”

Rodman, who’s in L.A. continuing long-term treatment at the Turning Point center outside L.A., also gave advice to those struggling with substance abuse.

“Sometimes it’s good to break away and try to search out what’s really important for you,” he said.

After celebrating more than 30 days of sobriety, Rodman told Page Six exclusively the motivation behind his decision to seek treatment again.

“I want to see my kids grow up,” he said. “I just needed to stop partying, take a step back and get my life back in order.”
