What overdosing does to the body

A representative for singer Demi Lovato has confirmed that the singer was recovering after being hospitalized for a drug overdose in Los Angeles. Emergency officials found the 25-year-old unconscious at her home just one month after she indicated in a new song titled "Sober" that she relapsed after six years of sobriety. Dr. Harshal Kirane, director of addiction services at Staten Island University Hospital in New York, joins CBSN to discuss what overdosing does to the body and how to help people battling addiction. Kirane has not treated Lovato.
