    On Tuesday, less than three weeks after checking out from detox for heroin abuse, Philip Seymour Hoffman looked exuberant and at ease.

    The 45-year-old actor appeared onstage at the 2013 Envision Awards in NYC and appeared very much his happy, healthy self.

    A source told E! News Seymour underwent 10 days of treatment last month after a brief, weeklong heroin relapse. Per the source, Hoffman recognized his downward spiral and "took care of it," and by the end of May was "back to work."

    The Capote star, who had been clean for 23 years prior to his most recent struggle, reportedly began to battle addiction again a year ago by abusing prescription pills, which eventually led to snorting heroin.

    We're certainly glad to see that he got the help he needed and appears to be doing well.
