OWN TV's Dr. Laura Berman Tragically Reveals Her 16-Year-Old Son Has Passed Away From Drug Overdose

Dr. Laura Berman, a relationship therapist who is the host of In the Bedroom with Dr. Laura Berman on the Oprah Winfrey Network, has revealed her teenage son, Samuel Berman Chapman, has died of a drug overdose.

“My beautiful boy is gone. 16 years old. Sheltering at home. A drug dealer connected with him on Snapchat and gave him fentinyl laced Xanax and he overdosed in his room. They do this because it hooks people even more and is good for business but I causes overdose and the kids don’t know what they are taking,” Dr. Berman posted on her Instagram account.

She continued, “My heart is completely shattered and I am not sure how to keep breathing. I post this now only so that not one more kid dies. We watched him so closely. Straight A student. Getting ready for college. Experimentation gone bad. He got the drugs delivered to the house. Please watch your kids and WATCH SNAPCHAT especially. That’s how they get them.”

Dr. Berman is also a regular guest on The Dr. Oz Show, and she is the host of the radio show, Uncovered with Dr. Laura Berman. Our thoughts are with the entire Berman family during this tragic time.
