Scott Disick takes a big step forward on the path to sobriety during this week's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Just one year ago, Jaclyn Stapp was living in a nightmare.

In November and December of 2014, her husband, Creed frontman Scott Stapp, suffered a psychotic break that was exacerbated by his drug and alcohol abuse. He released a disturbing video claiming that he was broke and "under some kind of pretty vicious attack."

As Scott's struggles became frontpage news, Jaclyn was going through her own personal torment as she tried to figure out her next steps to protect the couple's three children.

Scott was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He entered treatment for his addictions. A year later, he is sober – but the family is still rebuilding and healing.

To help them move forward, the couple signed up for Couples Therapy, where they had intense conversations about their relationship.

Jaclyn, 34, tells PEOPLE about the past year: what she's learned, how she coped, and where she goes from here.
