DJ AM's documentary about drug dependence is set to be aired next month.
The eight-part series 'Gone Too Far' - in which the late star, real name Adam Goldstein, speaks about his own addictions and his 11-year fight to get sober - will be broadcast on MTV from October 12.
It will show him meeting with fellow addicts and families who have been devastated by substance abuse. It will also show the musician trying to help them on the road to recovery.
It comes just weeks after DJ AM died of acute intoxication due to substance abuse and his family hopes the series will help others affected by addiction.
In a statement posted on MTV.com, the Goldstein family said: "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."
DJ AM was found dead in his New York apartment in August.
A coroner's report revealed the 36-year-old star was taking cocaine, oxycodone, Vicodin, Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Benadryl and levamisole at the time of his death.
