In December 2016, Rodney checked himself in a rehabilitation clinic in Malibu. “Best decision I've ever made in my life,” he stated. “It's another taboo: people don't know, but you are investing in yourself. Biggest tool I could have ever used.”
He said that, even though he stayed there for almost two months, he didn’t want to leave: that’s how well it was going for him. He even named his daughter Malibu, in tribute to the time he spent there, which saved his life.
