Scott Disick is reportedly too busy for rehab, with the reality star checking himself out of the high-priced center in Costa Rica and returning to Los Angeles.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had entere the Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica, checking in on Monday. Disick traveled to Costa Rica so he could be treated with the psychedelic drug Iboga, which is illegal in the United States.
“I realize my issues are bigger than me and I’m ready to truly remedy this struggle I continue to battle,” Disick said of his treatment. “While I have been unconvinced in the past of treatment and therapy methods, Rythmia’s rehab approach puts my worries at ease.”
His stay will last just one week, with Disick set to go home on Monday.
As TMZ noted, Disick decided he was too busy for rehab and left the program two weeks early.
“Disick’s people tell us he decided not to take that flight but will leave that facility Monday because he has too much business in LA to deal with. As for why he didn’t get on the plane today, we’re told he wanted to complete a full week of treatment before bailing. The normal length of treatment is three times that — 21 days.”
While he is ready to tackle his problems without rehab, Scott Disick has struggled on his own to beat his drinking. Last year, his then-pregnant girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian reportedly issued an ultimatum to Scott to quit drinking, but after being clean for a short time he started partying and drinking again.
Scott’s latest drinking troubles came last week, when he traveled to Atlantic City. Scott reportedly got drunk on tequila, and inside a club grabbed the mic and said that in London he wasn’t allowed to curse, so “They can suck my f**king d*ck and my balls.”
Disick was found drunk in the hotel lobby the next morning at 8 a.m., and after being taken back to his room missed his check out date and didn’t get on a flight to Chicago, where he was supposed to make an appearance.
Scott Disick’s decision that he is too busy for rehab had some curious timing. Just hours before, his girlfriend Kourtney had released a statement praising Scott for recognizing he had a problem and getting help. While there is no immediate word if Kourtney was part of the decision, the fact that he reportedly ignored her first ultimatum and now skipped out on rehab may not bode well for the couple.
