Celebrities have been paying tribute to the late Amy Winehouse, who died on July 23 — Mackenzie Phillips was one of them. "I've never met Amy Winehouse, but her death affected me deeply," she exclusively tells In Touch. The death hit close to home for Mackenzie, who also famously struggled with substance abuse for years, and believes "no one should have to die this way."
Reportedly in the process of becoming a certified drug and alcohol rehabilitation counselor, the former VH1 Celebrity Rehab star hopes to use her experience to help others. "Recovery from drug addiction is possible and beautiful. Rest in Peace."
