All seems to be well again for Scott Disick, who was reportedly hospitalized for a possible 5150 psychiatric hold on Aug. 18 after the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a call at his Hidden Hills home. The father-of-three made an appearance on Kim Kardashian‘s Snapchat this week, where he appeared to be in good spirits alongside her and her BFF Jonathan Cheban.
The LAFD confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that they arrived at the reality star’s residence at 5:03 p.m. the night of the incident, and that the man they treated (who remained unidentified in their statement) was non-violent. So what exactly is a 5150 psychiatric hold? “[The patient is] basically there involuntarily,” psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig explained to ET in 2015. “It’s usually a person who is in a sicker state that ends up in a hospital involuntarily because other people have decided that they can’t make decisions on their own behalf and they usually are considered a danger to themselves or others at least for a period of time.”

News of Scott’s hospitalization comes more than two years after he checked into the Rythmia Life Advancement Center, a luxury rehab facility in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. During that stint, the father-of-three said in a statement, “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. The fact that there is a money back guarantee that has never been called upon gives me even more confidence.”
He raised eyebrows when he left after a week. “The funny thing is, a lot of people were under the impression that I was going to this rehab facility in Costa Rica for a month, when the truth was, I was going for a week for one treatment that they have there,” he said at the time. “I’m not done. I plan to go back to this place.” We hope this hospital stay served as a wake-up call.
