The presence of opiates in a laboratory test of your son's blood or urine will certainly be an element of your son's case. In March 2013 the Social Security Administration issued a new ruling:SSR 13-2p. This ruling discusses DRUG ADDICTION AND ALCOHOLISM. It is generally not favorable to someone applying. Of course, if this is an isolated incident, it will not be as big a factor.
Whether opiates triggered the seizure or not it will be the underlying medical condition that disables your son that will decide the case. I am sorry for the situation he is in and hope things work out.
