NEW YORK, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi says his family will "get through" the "tragedy" of his daughter's recent heroin overdose.

Stephanie Bongiovi, 19, is recovering after the Nov. 14 incident at Hamilton College in upstate New York.

"This tragedy was something that I had to face, too, so we'll get through it. And people's warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good," the married father of four told TV's Fox 11, speaking publicly for the first time about the ordeal.
