Gun N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler has been hospitalized following a possible suicide attempt.

This Thursday after 6:30 p.m., Los Angeles police responded to a call from the rocker’s Studio City home, officer Jeff Lee told PEOPLE.

“Upon arrival, LAPD officers determined that there was no crime and the incident was being treated as a medical emergency only,” Lee said. “The subject was transported to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.”

A spokesperson at the Los Angeles Fire Department also said they were called to Steven’s home for a possible stabbing and transported one individual to the hospital via ambulance.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Steven, 54, has a long history of addiction troubles and even appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2008.

In 2017, the drummer’s mom, Deanna Adler exposed her son’s year of drug abuse and dark demons in a heartbreaking memoir titled “Sweet Child of Mine: How I Lost My Son to Guns N’ Roses.”

“I’m afraid to read it,” Steven told Rolling Stone at the time. “I’ve only read three books in my life, but one day I will read it just to see what I put her through.”

In her book, Deanna said that when her son went on the recovery show, it was clear to her he was not sober and was only looking to fight with her on TV. After four months of not speaking, they got into a vicious confrontation right there in front of the cameras, but after she left, she had hope Dr. Drew would point Steven in the right direction.

“Regardless of how I came off, I still hoped that Doctor Drew would help Steven. Steven was still smart enough to do anything he wanted with his life, and if they could get him to set his mind to cleaning up, he would. I knew that would be my only chance to fix the ill will between us,” she wrote. “It had to begin with a clean and sober son. Until then I couldn’t blame myself for Steven’s situation, couldn’t do anything to change it, and couldn’t be bitter because the show was using his damaged state to boost their ratings.”
