With the consent and support of Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein’s family, MTV will air this new one-hour, eight-episode series, which was hosted and created by Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein. It 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.
