DMX Must Enter Drug Treatment Program

DMX has the opportunity to shake his police monitored anklet and be released from house arrest if he agrees to enter a drug treatment program.

Via TMZ:

A judge signed off this week on X entering an inpatient treatment program for substance abuse — and as part of the deal, he’ll be able to leave his house without wearing an ankle monitor.

According to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, all other bail conditions are in place for X while he’s out on bond for his federal tax evasion case. He’ll still have to get permission to travel out of New York state, but can travel to the facility without issue. It’s unclear where the treatment program is located.

X’s attorney, Murray Richman, tells us X entered rehab because his drug usage had become impossible to manage.

As we first reported … he’s already requested approval to travel for some shows, but we don’t know if his treatment will affect those concert dates.

I sincerely hope DMX will get himself together once and for all.

He’s too incredibly talented to go to waste like this.
