Jon Bon Jovi still remembers every detail of the night his daughter overdosed on heroin. The worst part was the shock. He says:
"Worst phone call ever."
Since then, the surprise has been the sheer amount of fans and supporters that have come forth with their own stories of teen drug abuse. Jon says:
"In short, that problem is much more a problem than I knew, and I can't get over how many people have said, 'My son, my daughter.' There's a lot of pressure on kids these days."
There are definitely too many young people going through horrible experiences with drugs. One good thing to come out of Stephanie's ordeal is that her rock star dad can be a powerful advocate for living clean!
Of course, no silver lining would matter if Jon had lost his little girl. So how is she? He says:
"She's doing great. I'm just blessed she's healthy and whole and we'll get through it."
We're so glad to hear it! So many kids aren't so lucky!
