After consideration, DJ AM’s reality series, “Gone Too Far,” which will follow an intervention-style format, will air on MTV on October 12, 2009 at 10pm.
His family released the following statement regarding this decision:
“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. The decision to air the show has been difficult, but we do this with the profound belief that it will inspire others to seek help.”
As reported by CNN on September 29th, Adam Goldstein (aka DJ AM) died of “acute intoxication” due to a combination of cocaine and prescription drugs prescribed as a result of the plane crash he survived with Travis Barker in September of last year.
