The sober flash is over for Dennis Rodman — the NBA superstar acknowledges he fell off the wagon and had gone into drinking again … but now says he’s still dedicated on cutting booze out of his life.
Rodman went into rehab after a DUI arrest back in January — and has publicly spoke about the difficulties of going sober.
He went astray in the past 2 weeks and hit the bar scene in Newport Beach, CA — but tells TMZ Sports it was a mistake and he’s now going back to AA meetings in the expectations of staying sober.
Rodman said he had stopped going to meetings because they got dull — hey, at the least he’s honest.
But, after he continued drinking again, Rodman contacted his agent, Darren Prince (who’s also battled substance abuse) and his AA sponsor and asked them for assistance.
Rodman says he was eventually convinced to go back to the meetings and already senses he’s making progress.
“It’s a long process and it’s gonna take time to get over the hump,” Rodman implies.
Rodman has been to rehab before now in 2014 … and he was also featured on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” way back in 2010.
Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince was contacted who therefore opened that, “Dennis is the king of rebounds and he’ll rebound from this too.”
