While it is unfortunately not uncommon to see people in the public eye struggle with an addiction of some sort, this was especially tough for the reality star who was in his early thirties at the time, because his famous family does not drink. Matt contemplated telling them about his abuse issues and decided it was best, in the end, to come clean so he could seek proper treatment. Luckily, the Browns were understanding and only wanted what was best for him. “He’s fighting a hard road. He has for a long time,” his father, Billy, shared with People. “We just try to let him know that family’s here no matter what.”
Matt headed to the Betty Ford Center in September 2018, about two years after his first stint in rehab. His stay only lasted about a month, however, he was admitted back into treatment in January 2019 for a longer stay, per Radar Online. There are no further reports of Matt entering rehab, and he now seems to be living a quiet life.
