Jon Bon Jovi - Jon Bon Jovi's Daughter Is 'Doing Great' After Health Scare

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has assured fans his teenage daughter is "healthy" and "doing great" following her accidental drug overdose last year (12).

Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was found unresponsive in her dorm room at Hamilton College in New York in November (12), and she was later arrested after a small quantity of heroin and marijuana was found during a search.

The drug charges were eventually dropped and now the Livin' on a Prayer hitmaker reveals the 19 year old has moved on from the incident, even though it was an important wake-up call for his family.

During an appearance on U.S. chat show Katie, he says, "(It was) the worst call ever... but she's doing great; I appreciate everybody's thoughts and prayers. In short, that (drug) problem is much more prevalent than any of us, well, than I knew. And I cannot get over how many people I've met that have said, 'My son, my daughter, my son, my daughter...' It's (happened to) people I love, admire (and) respect. It happens to all kinds of families all over.

"There's a lot of pressure on kids these days, there's access to things that my generation didn't have. There's mistakes that are made. I'm just blessed that she's healthy and whole, and we're getting through it. We've got to."
