MTV has decided to air Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein's Gone Too Far reality series despite his August death from an accidental drug overdose.

Gone Too Far, an Intervention-like reality series that follows the celebrity DJ as he helped young people overcome various addictions, will premiere on Monday, October 12 at 10PM ET/PT.

MTV announced the show's debut with the "consent and support" of Goldstein's family.

"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," Goldstein's family said in a statement released by MTV.

"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."

Gone Too Far was originally slated to debut October 5 and Goldstein had announced he had just wrapped filming the series in an August 26 posting on Twitter.

However three days later, New York Police Department officers found Goldstein's lifeless body in bed in his Manhattan apartment after responding to a 911 call from a friend who was concerned Goldstein had missed an airplane flight and wasn't answering his phone.

A crack pipe, half a bag of crack cocaine and prescription drugs were reportedly found nearby.

Last week, the New York Medical Examiner's office declared Goldstein's death an accidental drug overdose due to the combined effects of cocaine, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Benadryl and Levamisole, a substance commonly used by drug dealers to cut cocaine.
