Costa Rica News – I would bet that Disick is not sitting on or near Jaco beach right now unless he plans on picking up a few Imperial beers on the Pacific coast if the land of “Pura Vida”. The last place I see someone becoming sober is Costa Rica but perhaps he will be locked away from the good times down here.
The 31-year-old reality star checked into the Rythmia Life Advancement Center on Monday, reports TMZ.
“I realize my issues are bigger than me and I’m ready to truly remedy this struggle I continue to battle. While I have been unconvinced in the past of treatment and therapy methods, Rythmia’s rehab approach puts my worries at ease,” Disick said in a press release.
The reality star, who has three young children with girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, said he is looking forward to starting “therapy and iboga treatment.”
According to the press release, iboga is a “small tree that grows in Gabon, Africa,” and “has been used to treat a variety of addictions and has been an effective form of treatment.”
Representatives for E! declined to comment, while reps for Disick and the Kardashian family have yet to respond to The Huffington Post’s requests for additional comment.
The decision to enter rehab comes after Disick had a particularly wild weekend in Atlantic City, New Jersey. TMZ reported that Disick made quite the impression at The Pool After Dark on Saturday night. The reality star allegedly screamed obscenities while he downed alcohol. The following morning he was seen hobbling around the hotel lobby without any shoes, and required an escort to take him back to his room.
Disick has struggled with substance abuse issues for years. This past summer he briefly entered rehab after a sleeping pill overdose.
