Lamar Odom is not the only man with previous Kardashian relations to face an unfortunate substance abuse problem. Scott Disick, 32, a reality TV socialite allegedly entered a drug and alcohol rehab center not more than a day after Odom was famously rushed to a hospital unconscious and unresponsive after a stay at a Nevada brothel earlier this month. Disick has been known to be someone to enjoy partying hard and partaking in potentially dangerous behavior, according to the celebrity news source HollywoodLife.com.
This isn’t completely shocking news as Disick has had a history with substance abuse treatment centers, but none of his stays have lasted very long. In one instance he checked himself in and out of a drug rehab center in the same day.
His close friend Odom’s troubling circumstance and near encounter with death could have been the wake-up call Disick needed to treat this drug and alcohol rehab visit a bit more seriously.
While Disick doesn’t fall in the age range of 15 to 24, which is the most at-risk for substance abuse disorders, he is male which gives him a statistically higher rate of potential addiction problems than women. In Canada there are 47,000 annual deaths related to substance abuse overall.
Disick shared a cryptic post on Instagram just before he was allegedly admitted into the alcohol abuse rehab facility. It read “Never Give Up.”
Disick is best known for his nine-year relationship with Kourtney Kardashian and his subsequent role on the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reality TV show. Reportedly, Disick and Kardashian are currently estranged.
According to The Washington Post, sources close to the situation say Odom’s condition hitting so close to home and his desire to gain custody rights of his three children he has with Kardashian were what convinced him to make another attempt at drug and alcohol rehab and getting clean.
?Kourtney Kardashian won?t let him have unsupervised visitation until she knows he?s clean,? a source said. ?Lamar?s situation has only reinforced the fact that Scott needs to go to rehab before things get worse and he loses everything.?
