After the terrible crash, Nelson said it was her brother, Mark Harmon, who urged her to seek help and go to the detox clinic.
"No one but my brother could have persuaded me that, because I trusted him," she said. "A voice in me said, 'Let somebody help you in your life.'"
But in 1987, Nelson learned that Harmon and his wife, actress Pam Dawber, took her to court to get custody of her youngest child, 12-year-old son Sam. Harmon claimed that Harmon Nelson was unable to take care of Sam because of her drug addiction.
Harmon Nelson told Star Magazine at the time the custody battle began when her brother persuaded her to go to a clinic. "He said, 'You need to take those pills and you need a good, long break & # 39 ;," she recalled.

In 2016, Sam told Medium that his relationship with his mother had improved over the years.
"As you get older, important things are no longer important," he explained. "Problems are no longer a problem, you work through them, or you do not, but for the most part you hope, I think we're good with each other and we have a good relationship."
