In the grip of addiction, where do you draw the line between a person who can be rehabilitated and one who is beyond help? “Gone Too Far” – an MTV one-hour series developed and hosted by Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, produced by
One of the most sought-after DJs in the world, DJ AM is uniquely qualified to help young addicts as he too has suffered from multiple addictions, weight problems and depression. DJ AM is mostly known for spinning at
The intense and eye-opening series features real addicts in crisis whose families are desperate to get them the help they need. Each episode will feature DJ AM meeting with the addicts, friends and families to explore their willingness to change. Through interviews and self-shot video from the addicts and families, the severity of the addiction and its crushing impact is exposed. In unexpected twists, DJ AM often uncovers and reveals new information that even those closest to the addicts are unaware.
Finally, in an intervention led by a certified addiction specialist, DJ AM brings everyone together to offer the addict the once-in-a-lifetime chance for a drug-free life. If they decide to accept his help, they are immediately escorted to some of the best rehab facilities in the country. Along the road to recovery, DJ AM makes time to see how their rehabilitation is progressing, providing a raw and honest look at their new sobriety. No addict’s story is the same and every path to becoming sober is different. Only time will tell if they ever come back from having gone too far.
“Substance abuse is an issue that our audience consistently struggles with and through his own battle with addiction, DJ AM knows first-hand the innate chaos drug dependency can inflict on addicts and their loved ones,” said
“I struggled for years as a drug addict and was fortunate to get help when I asked for it. I have managed to live a clean and sober life, something that takes work and something that I pride myself on. ‘Gone Too Far’ is my platform to help people, like I was helped – by giving back in a way,” said Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein. “The MTV audience was the perfect place for me to do this, as they are in the homes of so many who struggle and who may not know how to find the help they need. As much as I pray that each of the people that I’ve helped in each episode stay sober and get clean, I wanted the MTV audience to know that addiction is not something to take lightly. We wanted to show how real it gets and what can happen if you don’t get help.”
