Where did you hear that? Do have a link? Last I heard the thinking is that he can be bought out because it is a non-hockey issue. The CBA is silent on the matter, but I heard the thinking around the league is that he can be compliance bought out.

Here is a Times article in May which states the opposite, though doesn't state it definitively.

That Malone is in the Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program run jointly by the league and players association might not matter. Though the collective bargaining agreement does not specifically address the issue, it is believed the NHL's position is a player in the program can be bought out because his absence from the team is not hockey related.

Tampa Bay Lightning Buyouts used: 1
Former franchise face Vincent Lecavalier ($7.73 million cap hit until 2019-20) became the recipient of the largest buyout in NHL history ($32 million plus) in 2013. He was snatched up by the Flyers. Depth forward Ryan Malone ($4.5 million cap hit through 2014-15) is the prime candidate to go this summer; his cocaine arrest didn’t help his trade value. Although players, such as Malone, who are enrolled in the league’s Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program cannot be bought out, Malone could be finished with the program before the buyout period commences

Unlikely, since that might discourage a player from coming forward to admit a problem and sign up for rehab. He may calculate that he can "suck it up" and "handle" his problem quietly on his own long enough to finish his contract if it means avoiding a potential buyout and the loss of substantial ca$h

He'd be an interesting guy to have if on a league minimum or two way deal. I think he scored 30 points a couple seasons ago so might be worth a look.

Jordin Tootoo would be worth a look if you were the GM of an LNAH team.
