Scott Disick may be getting just what he needs to keep him focused on his sobriety in rehab — a visit from his ex Kourtney Kardashian. A top addiction expert tells us the ins and outs of rehab including why Scott may soon get some support from his family.
Bad boy Scott Disick, 32, is in rehab and trying to take the necessary steps to save his own life after Lamar Odom, 35, almost died from a reported drug overdose. Its been a difficult road for Scott but he may soon get a lift in the form of a visit from his former partner, Kourtney Kardashian, 36. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Robert Weiss, an addiction expert with Elements Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Center, about when Scott might get a visit from his family.
“There is no set rule here. In general, we want clients to have at least a week without home/work contact,” says Robert. “This gives them some time to ‘get into’ and ‘become present in’ treatment instead of always being focused on outside issues. This definitely makes sense and seems to be just what Scott needs.
“Of course, even if the client is not in direct contact with family, the staff will most definitely be in contact. Generally, direct involvement by family is determined by whether or not the family is fully supportive of recovery and willing to also look at themselves and their role. If they are, we pull them in early. However, in cases where they are more likely to resist and/or sabotage the process, which even well-intended families can do, then we will try to minimize contact. Again, these are not hard and fast rules. Every situation is different, and many factors are in play,” the expert continued.
We hope Kourtney reaches out and is fully supportive with Scott and his choice to enter rehab recovery. After all, he is the father of their three beautiful children – Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 10 months. “We’re told Disick took the leap because of his kids — he’s gunning for unsupervised visits,” TMZ last reported. This should def be Scotts number 1 motivation to get help! I mean these kids are so innocent and need a proper father figure in their lives!
Although Scott has had many failed rehab attempts ni the past, perhaps what he needs is a heart felt visit from Kourtney. Maybe that will be the game changer in his life. We hope that Scott gets the help he needs and recovers so he can reunite with his loved ones. Perhaps a reconciliation is in the cards for these KUWTK stars!
