Even in death, DJ AM, will be fighting hard to save others from the perils of drug dependence. At age 36, DJ AM died in his Manhattan apartment from a drug overdose this past August . Just before his death, the celebrated DJ shot an MTV series called Gone Too Far. In the show he speaks about his own addictions and his 11 year fight to become sober. In addition, he delves into the lives of young addicts battling their own addictions by recording therapy sessions held by him and family members.
The show is about giving help and offering advice to those affected by substance abuse. DJ AM’s family for weeks, has been deciding whether or not to let the series air, but finally decided to release the videos to help fight the ever growing problems millions of American families face from drug addictions. His family released a statement saying, “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.”
The eight-part series will finally air on MTV starting Monday, Oct. 12, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. What do you think?
