DJ AM’s Gone Too Far will air next week; family hopes “it will inspire others to seek help”

MTV announced this morning that the DJ AM-hosted intervention series Gone Too Far will debut next Monday night at 10 p.m. ET. It was originally scheduled to debut tonight but was pulled from the schedule after he died from an overdose in late August.

The press release includes a statement from Adam’s family that says:

“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.”
