bon jovi still shocked over daughters drug od

It has been three weeks since Stephanie Bongiovi was rushed to a hospital after overdosing on heroin and according to Jon Bon Jovi, the shock still hasn't diminished.

The legendary rocker is speaking out about his 19-year-old daughter and shedding some light on the Nov. 14 incident that took place in Bongiovi's Hamilton College dorm room.

He admits, "I'm shocked as much as the next parent with this situation and had no idea.  Steph is a great kid.  Great GPA. Cool school ... everything about it is idyllic.  She was doing great, then a sudden and steep decline."

"You bring her up the best you can, you surround her with hugs and kisses and know that she may eventually fall down.  I appreciate the outpouring of kindness in light of what happened in my household ... No one knows the future.  It is what it is."

Bon Jovi remains confident, "You surround them with the best help and love and move on, and that's where we're at with it."
