Last night's premiere of Gone Too Far revealed how the DJ AM used his own history of addiction to connect on a personal level with addicts he was helping. But do the show's participants feel betrayed by his overdose?
AM had a lot in common with Amy, the heroin addict he staged an intervention for on last night's episode. Both had drug-addicted fathers who died, and both turned to drugs to deal with that pain. Amy ended up getting sober and completing treatment. Immediately after watching the show, I wondered if Amy—or any of the other addicts who will be featured on future episodes—feel betrayed or let down by AM's death of an overdose just three days after filming for the series wrapped.
According to a recently filmed update with Amy, his death only makes her work harder to maintain her sobriety.
