After a few tough months for the Kardashian family, there’s a bit of good news from an unlikely source.

Though Lamar Odom, NBA star and husband to Khloe Kardashian, has been the subject of a great deal of media chatter surrounding his arrest on DUI charges and rumored drug problems, things seem to be looking up.

According to E! News, the athlete has allegedly been sober for more than a week and his recovery is going pretty smoothly.

“He is taking steps to get himself back on track,” one source tells E! “He wants his old life back, although he realizes that might not include Khloe.”

For one thing, Lamar is said to be trying to get healthy for his two children from a previous relationship, and he has found a support system to do so.

“He is surrounded by friends,” the insider adds. “We all hope he has turned a corner.”

As for Khloe, she has been occupied shooting the upcoming ninth season of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and has a lot on her mind at the moment, what with her mother’s split from Bruce Jenner after more than 20 years of marriage.
