"Scott has been very willing and open to get help and wants to continue treatment. Kourtney knows how to handle Scott and he is always in a better headspace when he gets to spend time with his kids," the insider continued. "She has really been there for him since his rehab exit, and has had a lot of sympathy towards him."
