Kourtney Kardashian has broken her silence on Scott Disick’s latest trip to rehab. The mother of three revealed she is supporting the father of her children in his effort to get better.
“He’s doing well. I think the thing that’s most important to me is just his commitment to working on himself,” Kardashian, 35, told People magazine. “If somebody doesn’t want to make changes, then that’s really hard.”
Disick, 31, checked into the Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica last week. He’ll employ alternative methods in the attempt to cure his struggle with alcohol. One such method is iboga treatment, which uses a hallucinogenic African plant to help overcome drinking problems.
“He is learning so much about himself and growing, and so that’s really amazing to see,” Kardashian told People. “When he’s working on himself, it only betters our relationship.”
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star has been to rehab before. A previous brief stay was documented on the spinoff “Khloe & Kourtney Take the Hamptons,” when Disick decided to leave the facility early. New reports claim he will once again leave treatment before completing it.
Disick tried to grab a flight Saturday after less than a week in Costa Rica, according to TMZ. He didn’t get on the plane, but he did get another ticket for Monday. He supposedly wants to have a full week of rehab under his belt. The New York native “has too much business in L.A. to deal with,” so he feels he has to leave the celebrity-news site reported.
Rumors of Disick leaving rehab began almost as soon as news broke that he was seeking help for his struggle with alcohol. Reports surfaced that he left rehab after only 12 hours. Other sources claimed he was not seeking treatment at all and that his stay was instead related to an endorsement deal with the Rythmia Life Advancement Center.
TMZ claimed Disick is in a 21-day program, but it is possible he could be finished with treatment in seven days. According to the facility’s website, it offers seven-, 10-, 14- and 21-day programs.
