A report has revealed proof into a shocking collapse by Zac Efron earlier this year due to an alleged heroin overdose while partying in his New York City hotel suite and RadarOnline.com has all the details.
According to the National Enquirer, Efron, 25, overdosed on the powerful painkiller oxycodone — known as “hillbilly heroin” — after a wild night of drinking and abusing the prescription drug, and had to be revived by fellow party guests!
A photo obtained by the National Enquirer shows Efron passed out in the Thompson Hotel on Jan. 3 after the alleged overdose.
“I was scared for him,” an eyewitness told the Enquirer.
“If he doesn’t clean himself up, he’ll be Hollywood’s next big drug tragedy.”
The eyewitness passed a polygraph test and claims Efron consumed a massive amount the oxycodone, as well as Adderall and marijuana.
Before ending up in the hotel room, the source says Efron needed to score the prescription pills on the street, which go for about $30 a pill, and requested that party guests buy 40 pills at a cost of $1,200.
“If he didn’t have such a need for the oxy, I don’t think he would have let us come into the room,” the source said.
“He was like a junkie. He wanted the drugs so bad, and this was the only way he could get them.”
The source told the Enquirer that Efron’s suite was littered with empty alcohol bottles and that while most users crush an oxy pill and snort it, “Zac doubled that.”
“He went through a lot of pills even though it was clear he was entering a danger zone,” the source added, noting that the actor later disappeared into the bedroom with a brunette who later told the source “they had sex.”
“My worst fear was that he had died from an overdose.”
As Radar previously reported, Efron completed a rehab stint in the spring to deal with his substance abuse issues.
