It’s not just the rock star lifestyle – it can happen to any family.
Jon Bon Jovi’s daughter is like many young men and women who abuse heroin in this country.
They come from good families.
The student was taken into custody after an incident at her dorm room at Hamilton college in New York.
Emergency crews were already treating Stephanie Bongiovi for an overdose when authorities arrived.
Bongiovi is lucky to be alive tonight. Many other kids end up dying after heroin use.
There was a death recently in Missouri, where an 18-year-old died the first time she tried heroin.
Teens and young adults typically do not try heroin after experimenting with alcohol and marijuana.
Heroin is typically a necessity for an abuser of prescription drugs. The opiate addiction is so severe, that they turn to heroin, a cheaper more pure high.
There’s no word on the condition of Bongiovi tonight, and we wish her a quick recovery.
These kinds of scary situations can be eye openers for parents.
They need to talk to their kids about the dangers of drugs, and experimenting with heroin can be a deadly mistake.
It is not uncommon for parents to test teens who go away to college. Many of the parents are paying the bills, and they want to make sure their kids are not partying with illicit drugs while away from the home.
