CAN­CER sur­vivor Michael Dou­glas has been hid­ing a shock­ing relapse se­cret!

The 74-year-old “Wall Street” star — who checked into re­hab in

1992 to be treated for al­co­hol and co­caine ad­dic­tion — has con­fessed he hasn’t stayed clean and sober!

“Not re­ally,” Michael re­cently ad­mit­ted.

“Every­thing is a ques­tion of mod­er­a­tions.”

His re­hab stint was a desperate bid to save his first mar­riage af­ter then-wife, Dian­dra Luker, caught him in bed with an­other woman.

They even­tu­ally split, and the re­formed skirt-chaser wed brunette bomb­shell Cather­ine Zeta-Jones in Novem­ber 2000. But the “Ba­sic In­stinct” star’s shock­ing dis­clo­sure comes af­ter a string of dru­gre­lated tragedies hit his fam­ily.

Michael’s younger half brother Eric died in 2004 from an over­dose of al­co­hol, tran­quil­iz­ers and painkillers when he was only 46.

His old­est son, Cameron, was busted in 2009 for deal­ing crys­tal meth and sen­tenced to five years in prison. He was caught with drugs be­hind bars, ex­tend­ing his sen­tence, and wasn’t re­leased from prison un­til 2016.

But Cameron, 39, vi­o­lated pro­ba­tion in April 2017 by us­ing mar­i­juana, mak­ing it clear he’s still strug­gling.

Now Michael — who was di­ag­nosed with stage IV oral can­cer in 2010 — sees a fa­ther-son link.

“My old­est boy was a heroin ad­dict who spent sev­e­nand-a-half years in a fed­eral prison,” he said.

“But I think you learn about ge­net­ics, amongst other things, that you have to be care­ful.”

Although Michael has pledged to be a bet­ter ex­am­ple to Cameron, his relapse con­fes­sion could hurt his son’s hopes of stay­ing straight, said an in­sider. “Michael knows he was a bad dad,” a source spilled. “He had hoped to re­deem him­self to Cameron by be­ing a source of strength when he needs it.”

The ac­tor ad­mit­ted he hasn’t been com­pletely sober af­tergo­ing to re­hab

Son Cameron was an ad­dict and did hard time
