Cameron Douglas, the son of actor Michael Douglas, struggled with addiction in the past. In 2009, his addiction resulted in him being put on house arrest.

His girlfriend at the time, Kelly Scott was caught smuggling him heroin. She, in turn, was sentenced to seven months in jail.

Now, years later, he is sober. The once-troubled youth decided to pen a memoir called “Long Way Home” to tell his story.

The book which will be officially released next week focuses on his family life. He also opens up about the eight years he spent in prison for possessing heroin and selling drugs.
