MTV TO AIR DOCUMENTARY SERIES "GONE TOO FAR"

ONE-HOUR SERIES HOSTED AND DEVELOPED BY ADAM "DJ AM" GOLDSTEIN OFFERS STRUGGLING YOUNG ADDICTS A CHANCE AT RECOVERY

Series Premieres On Monday, October 12 at 10pm ET/PT

New York, NY (October 5, 2009) � MTV, with the consent and support of Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein's family, will air the documentary series "Gone Too Far" on Monday, October 12 at 10pm ET/PT. The one-hour, eight-episode series hosted and created by Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein chronicles young addicts between the ages of 20-25 in the grip of addiction who are offered a chance at recovery.

The intense and eye-opening series features real addicts in crisis whose families are desperate to get them the help they need. Each episode features Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein meeting with the addicts, friends and families to explore their willingness to change. As part of his life long struggle to overcome substance abuse, his mission was to help as many people as he could and this series was a way for him to help on a bigger level. Through interviews and self-shot video from the addicts and their families, the severity of their addiction and its impact is exposed. Adam often uncovers and reveals new information that even those closest to the addicts are unaware. Along the road to recovery, Adam made the time to see how their rehabilitation was progressing, providing a raw and honest look at their new sobriety.

Adam's family tells MTV, "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."

"Recovery can be extremely difficult and requires constant attention, said Sean Clarkin," Executive Vice President of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. "But it's important to know that it is in fact possible to present examples of people who are recognizing the need for treatment and beginning that journey."
