Scott Disick is getting help. The father of three has checked into the Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica, a source confirms to Us Weekly. (TMZ was first to report the news.) 

While there, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 31, will undergo an alternative treatment, which “involves roots from a small African tree that supposedly helps people battle addiction,” according to TMZ. 

The center uses the Iboga plant, which is credited as having anti-addictive properties. Ibogaine, a hallucinogen which is created from plant roots, is supposed to help with cravings for alcohol and drugs like heroin. 

The party boy and entrepreneur told TMZ, “I realize my issues are bigger than me, and I’m ready to truly remedy this struggle I continue to battle.” His decision reportedly came after a night out in Atlantic City over the weekend.

Disick has long struggled with sobriety, and his issues only intensified after both his mother and father passed away within months of each other. On the family’s spin-off series Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons, Kourtney Kardashian’s longtime love hit a painful low, partying hard in front of the cameras.

He entered rehab in June 2014, telling a friend on the show, “I thought I was going to die.” 

"I've gone over this in my head so many times to try to live a cleaner life, and for some reason I just keep going back to the same routine," he said on KKTH's Nov. 23 episode. "I've pretty much become a broken record. And I'm sick of hearing myself talk about the problems I have that I don't fix."

Disick and Kardashian, 35, welcomed son Reign Aston Disick — their third child together — in December 2014.
