Mackenzie Phillips Reflects on Addiction at Prism Awards

Since Mackenzie Phillips published shocking claims last fall in her book High on Arrival, the star has made headlines regarding allegations her father had an incestuous relationship with her. She gave ET an update on how she is doing at the Prism Awards on Thursday night in L.A.

Finding the courage to walk the red carpet, Mackenzie reported, "I'm doing very well. I feel very hopeful about the future and my life is fairly normal." Having battled her own demons with drug addiction and the relationship with her father, she felt it was important to attend the annual awards presentation that salutes movies and TV shows that incorporate an accurate depiction of mental health issues and addiction into their storylines.

She said, "It's very important that we have empathy and compassion for addicts and people suffering from mental illness. I think that by rewarding the shows that treat it in a great light, I think it's just really an important thing to do."
