DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's web site, December 2009) Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein spent his entire adult life fighting the power of addiction. With great respect for Adam's mission and the family, friends and fans who loved him, MTV brings you 'Gone Too Far.' Hosted by DJ AM, 'Gone Too Far' is an intense and eye-opening series, which reveals the devastating effects of drug addiction while offering hope to those willing to accept an opportunity to change their lives. Each episode features Adam 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. Each addict's path to sobriety is different and only time will tell if they will ever come back, from having gone too far.
