Bon Jovi Breaks Silence On Daughter’s Heroin Overdose
When Jon Bon Jovi’s daughter, Stephanie, overdosed on heroin in November of last year, the famous singer didn’t have much to say on the subject to the press. Stephanie was found unresponsive in her room; a small amount of heroin, marijuana, and other substances of abuse were found in the room as well. Bon Jovi first took the time to care for his daughter, waiting until March of this year to open up and talk about what happened.
The Latin Times reports that Bon Jovi told Katie Couric that he didn’t know about his daughter’s drug abuse issues before she overdosed, and stated: “It was the worst phone call ever.”
He went on to tell Couric that Stephanie is doing much better and that he appreciated “everyone’s thoughts and prayers.”
Rock Star Problems
Usually it’s the rock star himself who struggles with drug abuse and addiction and ultimately seeks addiction treatment – or overdoses. Not in this case. Though his job may seem to elevate Bon Jovi above the problems that strike others, he says: “What I do for a living seems glitzy and glamorous but if you don’t take it too seriously it’s a great way to make a living. And then life goes on. Things happen.”
Handling those “things,” when they include addiction, effectively is the key to limiting the harm they cause. Intensive detox and drug addiction treatment can help those who struggle with drug abuse to learn more healthful ways to:
- Have fun
- Get to sleep
- Relieve stress
- Deal with trauma or other problems
- Socialize with others
Many people who have a drug problem began using illicit substances in order to deal with a problem in their lives. Stopping drug use doesn’t eliminate that underlying issue so without effective treatment that addresses that problem, relapse is imminent.
