A few weeks ago, reports emerged that Matt Brown cut his alcoholism addiction treatment short. Now, it turned out that the “Alaskan Bush People” star has continued with his treatment. The 35-year-old personally gave updates to his fans.
Matt Brown Gives An Instagram Update!
In an Instagram video posted on January 12, Matt shared that it was his last day of treatment. He said that he had been on treatment for the past six months. He said he’s been doing well now, and he thanked his fans for all the support they have been giving him.
On the contrary, previous reports said that Matt left the rehabilitation facility just 90 days into his treatment and went to a California desert. His father, Billy, reportedly wanted him to be with a sober coach 24/7 and attend therapy sessions, which Matt has allegedly refused.
The eldest Brown child even missed spending Christmas with his family, which was apparent in the holiday photos shared by his siblings, Rain and Bear, on their social media accounts.
Matt Is Focusing On His Recovery
Based on his Instagram posts, Matt said he got an extended Christmas pass, although it was not clear why he did not join his family to celebrate the holidays. He shared a video on his social media on December 27, updating fans that he is returning to the treatment facility. He also shared some photos and said he’s missing his sisters, Rain and Bird.
It is not clear where Matt Brown is, but comments from fans on his Instagram posts suggest that the reality star checked in at Al-Anon or a similar organization. It’s a non-profit organization headquartered in Virginia that caters to alcoholics and their friends and relatives who have been affected by their alcoholism.
Matt previously sought treatment for his alcoholism in 2016 and he relapsed last year given the hardship his family had to face when they learned about Ami’s fatal disease.
We hope to hear some updates when “Alaskan Bush People” Season 9 returns on March 3. Stay tuned!
