This isn't Scott's first stint in a treatment center. Over the summer, Scott briefly entered rehab while he was staying in the Hamptons with Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian while they filmed Kourtney And Khloe Take The Hamptons. He checked out after only a few days, but went back to treatment in March, this time at a facility in Costa Rica. That stay was also short-lived and he checked out again after only a week.
The timing is interesting, as the news comes on the heels of Khloe Kardashian's ex-husband Lamar Odom being hospitalized for what is being reported as an accidental overdose, but according to TMZ, Scott actually checked in last weekend, before Lamar's medical emergency.
They say that the decision was partially driven by his current custody battle with Kourtney Kardashian over their three kids. If he is clean, he stands a better chance at getting unsupervised visits. They say that Scott seems extremely committed and even cut ties with some of his party pals.
We wish him all the best and hope that this time will be the one that things finally turn around for him.
