Fisher has suffered with manic depression for most of her life. The condition was first diagnosed when she was a teenager.

In November 1998, Fisher entered a substance abuse clinic reportedly over problems resulting from prescription drugs for dental surgery. Fisher had previously been treated for an addiction to cocaine and for alcoholism.

"When I was younger, I thought my mother was perfect. She was beautiful. She was funny. She was loving and kind...She could only fall from the pedestal I put her on...Having a daughter of my own made me realize what my mother had been up against while raising me."---Carrie Fisher on her mother Debbie Reynolds Biography Spring 2004
