The actor is surrounded by friends and family, who have been anxiously awaiting an update from doctors, Brock said.
As part of the reality show "Celebrity Rehab" in 2008, Conaway discussed his addiction to drugs and alcohol.
His manager described Conaway as a "gentle soul," but one who has been unable to "exorcise his demons."
Conaway appeared in the 1978 movie musical "Grease," and starred in the TV series "Babylon 5."
