There have been reports that Gucci Mane has allegedly entered a drug rehabilitation center in Georgia. Ozone Magazine reported that friends of the southern rapper took to an intervention to get the southern rapper to comply. They surrounded him outside of the Riverwoods Southern Regional Psychiatric Center in Riverdale, GA and persuaded him to check himself in for his addiction to cocaine.

His lawyer joined the entourage of friends, and made clear to Gucci Mane that his drug habit could quickly put him back in jail for a long period of time. The rapper eventually gave in and checked into the 28 day program.

In 2008, the Brick Squad rapper was sentenced to a year in jail after he tested positive for narcotics and violated his parole.

Gucci later denied that it was cocaine that sent him to jail.

He said, “I think it was marijuana…but it definitely wasn’t from cocaine. I have never used cocaine. I stopped smoking and stopped drinking. For the last six months, I haven’t used any drugs, and I will continue to claim sobriety.”
