Cameron Douglas is returning to society after his stint in prison with the help of his family, according to the New York Post, which published a statement and interview with his friend-turned-publicist on Sunday.

“Cameron is spending this time healing with his family,” Noel Ashman said in the statement. “He feels blessed to have an opportunity to give back and contribute positively to society. And he is extremely grateful for the staunch support and encouragement that he has received.”

The 37-year-old son of Michael Douglas was released from prison after nearly seven years following a drug conviction. In 2010, he was sentenced to a five-year prison term for possession of heroin and selling methamphetamine. His sentence was extended after he admitted to smuggling drugs into prison. He was supposed to be released in 2018, but was recently moved into a halfway house in New York City.

Douglas has taken to Instagram to show his post-prison life and has been spotted with a woman who has been identified as Viviane Thibes. The 38-year-old yoga instructor is originally from Brazil, but is now based in New York City. The Instagram account linked to Douglas shows the two together as far back as five weeks ago.

Ashman told the Post that Douglas’ drug problems are in the past, and that he is even starting a charity to help other drug addicts. He also said his friend has recruited an acting coach and is looking to act again soon.

“He learned his lesson and he’s now laser-focused,” says Ashman, adding that Cameron has an acting coach and is eager to get back on the big screen.

“The whole experience taught him how important time is – and he doesn’t want to waste any more of it.”
