imageBam Margera[1]'s going to knock out a couple entertainment gigs in L.A., and then start trying to get a handle on his life ... TMZ has learned.

Bam's mom, April Margera[2], tells us ... the plan is for him to head to a California rehab facility Friday, after he fulfills the commitment he made to shoot a TV show on Wednesday and Thursday.

April says she and Bam's father researched rehab centers to help their son pick the right one. Bam's wife, Nicole, is also lending a hand, but we're told Johnny Schillereff -- Bam's pal and CEO of Element Skateboards -- has taken the reins in getting him help.

We're told "Dr. Phil[3]" reached out to Margera Monday after we broke the news[4] friends and fam were trying to get Bam help, but he turned it down.

After his DUI arrest[5], we're told the first thing Bam said was he wants to be there for his wife and their newborn son, Phoenix.
