Lamar Odom has reportedly been trying to take some steps toward recovery.

The basketball player, who is allegedly fighting a serious drug addiction, is said to have met with NBA drug counselors before he was arrested for DUI on Friday morning.

According to TMZ, Odom was visited at home by former NBA players Dirk Minniefield and Cliff Robinson.

The site says the two athletes previously struggled with substance abuse, and now work with the National Basketball Players Association, counseling players who are struggling with addiction.

Just hours after the meeting, however, Odom was busted for drunk driving, and refused a chemical test.
