During the latest Teen Mom OG reunion, Tyler Baltierra has an emotional moment with his dad, Butch. As fans know, Butch has struggled with addiction and in this last season of the MTV series, he relapsed.

In a clip obtained by OK! Magazine, the family has an emotional conversation. Tyler's mother Kim says Butch was "dead" to her because he missed the birth of their granddaughter, Vaeda. This comment makes Butch break down in tears, and Tyler jumps in to offer his unconditional love for his father. Tyler says to his dad, "I will not give up on you. Period. Ever."

Tyler's sister Amber was also present at the reunion, and she had a grudge against Butch, too, because during his relapse, he missed the celebration for her sobriety anniversary.

Tyler has often been vocal about his support of his father and sister as they struggle with addiction, and his openness about the subject no doubt helps to battle cultural stigma against addiction.

The Teen Mom OG reunion show will air on Monday, Sept. 2.
