DJ AM’s show, Gone Too Far — an Intervention-style series about drug addiction —will be aired on MTV despite his shock death of an accidental overdose in August.

The cable network confirmed that it will premiere the eight-part documentary featuring the celebrity DJ on Oct. 12 at 10pm, to help young people struggling with substance abuse.

The spinner, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, had finished working on the series when he was found dead in his New York apartment aged 36.

“After careful consideration we have decided to air the show,” Adam’s family said in a statement released by MTV.

“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.”
