Stephanie Rose Bongiovi
Jon Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was arrested at her college in Upstate New York early this morning after allegedly overdosing on heroin ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Town of Kirkland Police Department, cops responded to a dorm room at Hamilton College after someone reported that Stephanie had allegedly overdosed on heroin and was unresponsive.

Along with police, emergency medical personnel also responded to the scene and found Stephanie alive.

Cops say a drug task force searched the scene and found a "small quantity" of heroin ... along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Stephanie was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia -- all misdemeanors.

Stephanie was eventually released from custody -- and ordered to appear in court at a later date.

Another student was also arrested -- a 21-year-old male -- who was also charged with drug possession.

Stephanie is Jon's only daughter -- and the oldest of his 4 children with wife Dorothea Hurley.

Amazing how many people have something to say about something and someone they know nothing about. Sometimes I wanna be something besides a human being.

Sad, so sad— I hope she gets the help she needs. It does not matter if you are rich or poor, DRUGS is the name of a ship called the "Total Destroyer and NO ONE, yes no one should board it.

Being from the same town Jon Bon Jovi came from, he is not a virgin to this activity and I'm sure he and his wife will due whatever it takes to get this child of 19 baby years old the help she needs. Drugs can get the best of us, and she is no different. Good luck Jon and hope she gets better.

Another typical druggie who will die of an "accidental" overdose. Which, is NOT accidental when you willingly and knowingly put drugs in your mouth, she's an idiot.

Find out the truth    

Why doesn't anybody on here acknowledge that there is a CURE for all forms of addiction called IBOGAINE. Its been around since the 60's and has saved countless lives from the cycle of addiction, depression, and anxiety? Google it. No other treatment even comes close to the cure rate of IBOGAINE because it not only fixes the chemical imbalances in the brain but forces the addict to deal with the underlying issues that lead to the drug use in the first place. It is al close to you can come to a "Miracle Drug" and it comes from a plant in south Africa and is from nature, not a laboratory.

This is what is going on at College these days. It is NOT just sporadic - it is EPIDEMIC. I so feel for the Bongiovi's - this is an ugly path their naive daughter has taken. Crosses all demographics, all strata of society - and yet we didn't hear a thing about it during the recent election. Nor do I expect to hear about it - especially since cheap heroin is making so many people rich - including the Afghani warlords whose trade routes we are protecting with more of our young peoples lives.
