Radar previously reported that the 37-year-old troubled son of Billy, 65, and Ami Brown, 54, entered treatment in late September.

According to sources, he began drinking again after two years of sobriety as a "way to deal with his mother Ami's cancer diagnosis."

Although Matt was initially meant to spend 90 days in the in-treatment program, late last month a source told Radar that he was "ready to leave."

"Matt thinks that he is ready to leave after 30 days and everyone is urging him to stay in," a source revealed at the time. "He says that he is almost ready and can handle this on his own now."

This is Matt's second attempt at getting sober.

After his first stint in 2016, Matt discussed his downward spiral with fans and said, "I could see myself spiraling. I was more withdrawn. I was slower and things did not excite me the way that they used to."
