‘Alaskan Bush People’ star, Matt Brown, has entered rehab for alcohol abuse after suffering yet another relapse. The 36 years old reality star, who had been battling alcoholism for quite some time, is heading back to rehab after his first stint back in 2016.
Matt Brown has been Enduring Alcoholism for Years
In an exclusive weekly interview with People, Matt divulged on his decision to return to rehab saying, “I struggle with substance abuse, and after a year of ups and downs, I decided to return to treatment. I’m really grateful for everyone’s support and hope to have my life back on track soon.”
Matt has been facing many problems in recent years. After his first rehab stint in 2016, he got injured after a refrigerator exploded in their homestead. The Brown family had been in Southern California when the mishap occurred. He had to get nine stitches and stay in the intensive care for a few days.
Ami Brown is Becoming Strong for her Son
While Ami, Billy & Bear are in California waiting for the results of Ami’s cancer test, the rest of family are having a hard time in Washington. So, this decision of Matt will just add pressure on the Brown family.
Ami, who is currently in California for her once-in-three-months cancer test said, “It’s hard not having one of my babies here with us. He was so strong for me, and I want to be strong for him.”
Similarly, supporting his son through this hard time, Billy said, “We miss him terribly, but we’d rather lose him from home for a little while than lose him forever. We just want him to do what he needs to do to get better.”
We hope that Matt gets help and find his way back to his life.
