TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is planning to debut a new song at a New Jersey forum on drug abuse.

The event is aimed at raising awareness about abuse of heroin and prescription painkillers along the Jersey shore.
The area, like many across the country, has seen a surge in addictions and related fatalities.
Sambora grew up in northern New Jersey and once owned a home near the shore. He has acknowledged substance abuse problems in the past.
He is currently on leave from the band.
