After careful consideration and with the consent of DJ AM’s family, his 8-episode documentary on the struggles of drug addiction will air on MTV. The series will air on Monday, October 12. The one-hour show will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT and chronicle the lives of young addicts, ages 20-25, who are offered a chance at recovery.
“After careful consideration we have decided to air the show,” Goldstein’s family said in a statement about their decision 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.
Adam Goldstein was just 36 years old when he died in August.
