Just one year after the Roloff family’s beloved farmhand Camerino Gonzalez Sanchez was deported for a cocaine possession conviction, the Little People, Big World clan is facing another drug crisis, can report.

Matt Roloff’s assistant turned girlfriend Caryn Chandler, 49, has a young son struggling with addiction, her daughter Brittany has claimed on social media.

“Tonight and most nights, I fall asleep wondering where my brother is, if he’s safe, and what tomorrow will bring,” Brittany, 21, wrote on her Instagram page in October. “The heavy misuse of prescription drugs and opportunity to deal has turned my brother into someone I hardly even recognize anymore. I struggle to understand what this epidemic has become and why it has to be this way.”

She claimed her brother Connor, 19, often stays on the streets of their native Portland, Oregon.

After a brief reunion, Brittany revealed her brother was once again struggling earlier this month.

“My brother…is once again consumed by addiction,” she grieved.

Perhaps reality patriarch Matt, 56, can help the suffering teen. As Radar previously reported, the father of four admitted in his memoir Against Tall Odds that he abused cocaine before turning to God and religion.

“I never thought I’d be someone who used drugs, but it happened,” he wrote in the 1999 book. “I thought I could just try it and get out of it, but I was wrong. It caught me like a bear trap. I almost didn’t escape.”
