As a result of having his supervised release terminated, Cameron will no longer have to report to probation officers or complete any further hours of community service.
Cameron - who has three-year-old Lua and two-month-old Ryder with partner Vivane Thibes - spoke briefly and admitted he feels "really good" about where he is in his life.
He said: “I feel really good about where things are going. I had a son — he’s a great little guy. He brings a level of peace to this household.
“I’m just feeling very grateful for where I am in my life. The relationship with my family is in the best place it’s every been in."
'Wall Street' actor Michael has previously spoken of how proud he is that his eldest son has been able to turn his life around.
He said: "He's doing great, he's in wonderful shape. I'm just so proud. He's had a rough go of it. Addiction is just a terrible terrible disease. It affects all families. He's planning on doing speaking engagements. Things are looking up in the future.
"There were moments when hope dwindled ... and then it's just a train out of the station. Life became a series of crises. I thought I was going to lose him."
