Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein had been working on a documentary series about addiction in the months leading up to his death from an overdose. Gone Too Far—which follows AM's mission to help other addicts—premieres on MTV October 12.
Before his apparent relapse, AM had been sober for 11 years, and his family has given consent to MTV to air the show, hoping that it will help others not meet the same fate as AM. In a statement, his family has said:
After careful consideration we have decided to air the show. Adam felt strongly that by doing this series he could help other addicts who were at a crisis point to get sober. Adam was fully aware that if it were not for his own sobriety he never would have achieved the level of success and happiness he had found. Helping people in their recovery was a huge part of Adam's life. It is our hope through airing this show that people will get to see the side of Adam that we knew and loved, not just the celebrity DJ, but the honest and caring person who gave so much of himself to help others.
