Scott Disick has checked into rehab.
Kourtney Kardashian’s longtime boyfriend checked into the Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica where he will take part in the iboga treatment plan.
“I realize my issues are bigger than me and I’m ready to truly remedy this struggle I continue to battle,” Disick said in a statement. “While I have been unconvinced in the past of treatment and therapy methods, Rythmia’s rehab approach puts my worries at ease. The fact that there is a money back guarantee that has never been called upon gives me even more confidence. I am looking forward to starting my therapy and iboga treatment there.”
According to a press release, obtained by HipHollywood, the iboga plant is a small tree that grows in Gabon, Africa, whose roots contain 12 medicinal alkaloids and is often used to treat addictions.
And although Scott will be focusing on his sobriety, it won’t exactly be rough living. The luxury rehab center is located just minutes from the beach, has a fitness center, five-star restaurant, full-service spa with mud bath and many other boutique amenities.
The rehab stint comes just days after Scott enjoyed a alcohol fueled weekend in Atlantic City. According to reports, the 31-year-old had multiple shots of tequila and came stumbling into his hotel at 8 a.m.
As chronicled on Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s, Disick has always struggled with his sobriety. During last season of KUWTK’s spinoff series, Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons, Scott checked himself into rehab after getting wasted and taking a bottle of sleeping pills.
Scott and Kourtney have three kids together, Mason, 5, Penelope 3 and baby Reign Aston Disick.
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
