If you believe all the reports, Scott Disick’s rehab stint seems to be going well — meaning, he hasn’t checked out yet.
News of Scott Disick’s rehab stay broke on October 14 — shortly after news reports indicated that Lamar Odom had been rushed to the hospital. Like Odom, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians TV personality has publicly struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, both on reality TV programs and off.
If Disick checked into the facility on October 14, (some reports indicate he checked in earlier), that would mean Scott has been in rehab for eight days so far, making it Scott’s longest rehab stint to date.
Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend is known for his brief stays in rehab facilities. In fact, according to ET Online, the current Malibu rehabilitation center is the fourth Scott has checked into within the past year.
Previously, his longest stay was at the Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica, where he stayed for one week. In July, Scott also checked into a treatment center in Florida, though the reality TV star is said to have checked out just a few hours later. During an episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons, Kourtney also indicated that Scott had checked out of the Mountainside Treatment Center in Connecticut after only five days.
Given Scott Disick’s rehab history, fans are wondering: What makes this time different?
Sources have speculated that the situation with Lamar Odom has changed the way Scott sees things. Perhaps the recent Lamar Odom scare has given Scott some new perspective on what could happen if Scott doesn’t cool it on the substances.
Odom, who is married to Kourtney Kardashian’s sister, Khloe, and was like family to Scott, was admitted to a Las Vegas hospital October 13 after he was found unconscious in a nearby brothel. Lamar allegedly took a combination of cocaine and sexual performance-enhancing pills, which may have led to a coma, surgeries, and a long road of rehab.
Others speculate that Scott Disick finally knows what it’s like to miss Kourtney and the entire Kardashian family. Scott and Kourtney were together for nearly a decade and have three children together: Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 10 months. The couple split in July after Scott was seen cuddling up with his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli, in France.
Could Scott and Kourtney get back together if Scott cleans up his act? In a recent trailer for an upcoming Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode, Scott can be seen talking to Kourtney, Khloe, and Kris Jenner, saying “It’s been a really hard time, going from like, having all of you guys to having nobody.” He later adds “I made the worst decision I could have ever made in my life.”

In the same trailer segment, Kourtney Kardashian tells her ex-boyfriend “you forget what happens when you’re on a binge.”
As the Inquisitr reported, sources have indicated that Kourtney wants her ex to clean up in order to spend more time with his three children. Some reports have even speculated that Scott checked himself into rehab this time around in order to gain more credibility in a custody battle. Allegedly, Scott wants to earn unsupervised visitation with his kids.
What do you think? Do you think Scott Disick will stick around rehab for a bit longer this time? Why do you think he’s decided to stay in a rehab facility this time over previous check ins?
