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.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
