According to The Hollywood Reporter, the celebrity DJ, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, will use his experience overcoming drug addition to help young people struggling with chemical dependency on the intervention reality show.
In 2008, the celerbrity spinner revealed that he was abused by his father, became addicted to drugs and had attempted suicide.
Adam has been sober for more than ten years.
The new show will feature interventions for young people whose lives have become unmanageable because of chemical dependence. An addiction specialist will lead the series –which does not yet have an airdate–while DJ AM will be present throughout the intervention process.
MTV is set to announce the program in New York next week during its “upfront” presentation to advertisers.
In September, DJ AM was critically injured when a Learjet carrying him and Travis Barker of Blink-182 burst into flames.
