DJ AM’s Addiction Intervention Show Premieres on MTV
DJ AM’s reality television show, “Gone Too Far,” premiered on MTV on Monday. Although he lost his own battle with drugs a few months ago, AM (born Adam Golstein) set out to help others overcome their addictions with the show, and he succeeded with Amy, who is featured in the series premiere.
The eight-episode series follows Goldstein as he tries to help addicts get sober. AM captures the addicts on camera to show them what they are doing to themselves and to their families. In a format similar to that of A&E’s “Intervention,” the show progresses to an intervention and the addict going to rehab.
Goldstein seemed in good spirits while trying to help Amy, who was willing to go to rehab after shooting up one last time in an airport. Throughout her rehab process, AM made frequent journeys to her treatment facility to show his support.
In a follow-up with Amy seven weeks after she completed her treatment—and after Goldstein’s death—she said he shouldn’t be remembered for the way he died. She said he gave her a chance to live and that she’ll be forever thankful.
