MTV is teaming with DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, to launch an intervention-style reality show.

Tentatively titled “Gone Too Far,” the series will feature the celebrity DJ, who has had his own battles with drug addiction and last year survived a plane crash.

The show chronicles tough-love interventions for young people whose lives have become unmanageable because of chemical dependence. DJ AM will be present throughout the intervention process, which will be led by an addiction specialist. MTV is set to announce the program next week in New York during its “upfront” presentation to advertisers.

The series does not have an airdate.

DJ AM has had a few TV gigs, appearing on MTV’s “Punk’d,” Fox’s “The Simple Life” and HBO’s “Entourage.”

Last year, he revealed that he was abused by his father, became addicted to drugs and had attempted suicide. He said he attended recovery meetings and has been sober for about a decade.

In September, DJ AM was critically injured when a Learjet carrying him, frequent collaborator Travis Barker of Blink-182 and four others burst into flames during an aborted takeoff in South Carolina. DJ AM and Barker were the only survivors.
