As fans know, Ami isn't the only one in the family who has overcome health complications, as her troubled son Matt Brown, 36, is winning a war of his own — against the deadly disease of addiction.

In December, 2018, Matt checked out of an in-patient treatment center near his family's home in Washington State. Instead of adhering to his father Billy's demands to have a sober coach 24/7, the eldest Brown brother took off and went M.I.A. in a desert outside of Palm Springs, Calif.

Luckily, the struggling alcoholic found his way and landed in an outpatient treatment center in the area and, with his mother Ami's support, has remained sober since.

"Matt is closer to his mom than ever before and she has been one of his main motivating forces in getting and staying sober," the insider revealed to

"He does not always see eye to eye with Billy because Matt is a mama's boy. He is Ami's first born and they will always share an unbreakable bond."

As was the first to report, Alaskan Bush People has been renewed for season 9, which is expected to premiere in the spring.
