Dylan isn’t the only family member that is actively supporting and promoting Cameron’s memoir. Some weeks ago, his stepmother,

Catherine Zeta-Jones

reports

.

The actress shared a black-and-white photo of her and Cameron on the dance floor during what looked like a wedding day. In the caption, she described the book as a “poignant, honest, cathartic, and at times, terrifying.”

During an interview with People Magazine, Michael and his eldest son talked about his addiction struggles. The 40-year-old recalled that his addiction began with teenage bouts of smoking and drinking.

However, he soon realized that he found it hard to stop.  His father recounting the harrowing moments said:

"There were moments when hope dwindled.. and then it’s just a train out of the station. Life became a series of crises. I thought I was going to lose him.”

Luckily, that didn’t happen. After being about seven years behind bars, Cameron was released in 2016 as a changed man, Page Six reports. He has picked up the pieces of his life and is rebuilding it with each passing day.

He hopes his memoir can help other addicts “seek help-and maybe save a life.”

Cameron is now busy with raising his two-year-old daughter with girlfriend Vivian Theibes and working on kick-starting his acting career.
