Closer Weekly - - News Now -

MACKEN­ZIE PHILLIPS finds that the sil­ver lin­ing to her decades-long bat­tle with ad­dic­tion is us­ing her own ex­pe­ri­ence of turn­ing her life around to help in­spire oth­ers. “I’m pas­sion­ate about re­cov­ery. I love ad­dicts,” says the One Day at a Time star, 57, who now gets a nat­u­ral high from work­ing as a drug-and-al­co­hol coun­selor. “If you’ve gone down the rab­bit hole of ad­dic­tion, you don’t have to live that way any­more. We do re­cover.”

She de­tails her jour­ney in a new book,Hope­ful Heal­ing: Es­says on Man­ag­ingRe­cov­ery and Sur­viv­ing Ad­dic­tion.
