All this was not enough for DJ AM adam michael goldstein.
dr. sober companion could have saved dj am's life!

dr. sober companion is trying to sort out the death of 36 year old, adam michael goldstein aka DJ AM, and I am in disbelief, because know matter how many obstacles in life that was blocking adam michael goldstein aka DJ AM, he got through it, with astonishing success.

Because this is a sober companion blog, and we work on 100% abstinence of drugs and alcohol, and a complete removal of all enablers, we must ask the questions:

Was this a drug overdose at the hands of an over prescribing dr. feelgood medical prescription?

Was this suicide by drug overdose?
We know one thing, thanks to TMZ, prescription pill vials were at the scene of the death. If this was drug related, than dr. sober companion could have saved the life of another young person. Thats a fact!

1. the fat years of DJ AM
DJ AM underwent Gastric Bypass Surgery, which made him thin. While a fat person who instantly becomes thin, can have severe psychological problems, he appeared to overcome that obstacle in life. Although he still ate like a fat person, purchasing oreo cookies, frosted flakes, regular coca cola, cheese wiz, on a trip to a local grocery store. DJ AM was once quoted as saying: “I have to remind myself that I'm a fat crackhead who’s lucky to be alive.”

2. the drug addict alcoholic DJ AM
DJ AM was once quoted about kicking his drug addiction and alcoholism: “I no longer needed a trophy girlfriend or drugs to feel good about myself. It’s been nine and a half years since I’ve had a drink or taken drugs. But every day I have to remind myself that no matter how much time I have behind me, I’m still a drug addict. At any given moment, I’m five seconds away from walking up to someone, grabbing their drink out of their hand and downing it. And if I do that, within a week, tops, I’ll be smoking crack.” DJ AM sounds like a member of AA or NA, in that he still classifies himself as a drug addict, even though he is recovering. dr. sober companion wants to remind the parents of drug addicts and alcoholics seeking help in drug and alcohol rehab, that once someone is a drug addict or alcoholic, they remain one, and that is why it is dangerous to leave your children with a drug addict or alcoholic in a drug rehab facility, no matter how expensive it may be. Sources tell TMZ prescription pill bottles were found near DJ AM's body this afternoon. A law enforcement source on scene tells TMZ a glass "crack pipe" was found in his bedroom. The pill bottles were found in the kitchen.

3. the hobnobbing years of DJ AM
DJ AM was once quoted about his girlfriends: “I no longer needed a trophy girlfriend or drugs to feel good about myself. " appearently, yes you did need something other than drugs to feel good about yourself. Breaking up is very hard and leads to depression.

4. the private jet crash of DJ AM
DJ AM had luck: “Anybody who can survive a plane crash is very lucky.” Thats why dr. sober companion felt, if you have a man that is this lucky, to cheat death, that he could accomplish anything in life. Unfortunately, guilt is very strong, and the death of 4 people on the same flight, may have been to much to handle. Parents can enable their children and unknowingly push their children to near death drug overdoses with their own brand of guilt. Sometimes you need to hire dr. sober companion to remove the enablers, and poisonous people from your childrens lives, including yourselves. (but not permanently)

We're also told DJ AM was having a very hard time dealing with post-traumatic stress from the plane crash he survived in September of last year.

5. the earlier suicide attempts of DJ AM
DJ AM was once quoted about his past suicide attempt: “at 24 I felt like my life was over. I went into my living room, reached into a cabinet above my TV and grabbed my gun, a loaded .22. I sat back on my heels, cocked it and put it into my mouth. I pulled the trigger. The gun didn’t go off. I thought, ‘Are you kidding me? I’m such a fucking failure I can’t even kill myself? I dropped the gun and broke down. That was the turning point in my life.” How many chances in life do people have to cheat death? If you see a destructive pattern is growing, you must take drastic steps as a parent to intercede. One way to intercede is by hiring a sober companion like dr. sober companion, who may be able to distract your child long enough to turn the corner and for them to go in a different direction then suicide.

possible causes of death that people are speculating around the internet:

coronary heart disease?
drug overdose by an over prescribing dr. feelgood medical prescription?

Some details:

Adam Goldstein — was found dead this afternoon in New York City.Law enforcement sources tell tmz he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM.

DJ AM had not been seen or heard from for a few days. One of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door.

The friend called the police, who broke down the door and then found DJ AM’s body.

Sources said drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment. He was 36 years old.

DJ AM was a major attraction and was worth the wait of getting into wherever he was spinning. DJ AM had a unique mix of hip-hop, rock and ‘80s hits that made for a great time on the usually crowded dance floor. Even though DJ AM was not there nightly, LAX usually has a celeb or at least A-List DJ ranging from Steve Aoki to Benji Madden from Good Charlotte or Adam 12 of She Wants Revenge.

DJ AM was sought after around the entire world, and had opened a second club LAX at the luxor in las vegas. club LAX in vegas is known as the hottest club to land in Sin City, LAX Nightclub, continues to rock The Strip with unrivaled parties.

DJ AM dated socialite and reality TV star Nicole Richie and also singer/actress Mandy Moore. DJ AM also was linked to Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam. Basically, DJ AM was a bonafide pimp.

DJ AM was also a former member of the rock band, Crazy Town, known for their hit, “Butterfly”. DJ AM has also scratched on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, Will Smith and Shifty. DJ AM has played private events for celebs like Jim Carrey, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez, Ben Stiller, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Kate Hudson. DJ AM had recently collaborated with Travis Barker of blink-182 and +44 in several performances.

DJ AM is also an avid ’sneakerhead’ and collects a variety of athletic shoes, the majority of which are by nike. His collection of over 600 shoes, includes a pair of Nike Air Force 1 shoes that were created specifically for him, with his DJ AM logo appearing on the shoe itself.

Gastric bypass surgery:

First of all, if you didn’t know, DJ AM wasn’t always a skinny guy. Before he dated Nicole Ritchie, he was a fat guy, that underwent Gastric Bypass Surgery. I found this study online which documents my suspicions regarding high suicide rates of patients of gastric bypass/stomach stapling surgery.

October 29, 2007 — Extremely obese Pennsylvania residents undergoing weight loss surgery over a 10-year period had a higher-than-expected mortality rate from suicide, according to a new study appearing in the October issue of Archives of Surgery. The study also uncovered an excess of deaths due to coronary heart disease among these surgery patients.

The large number of deaths from suicides and drug overdoses is “a cause for concern,” the authors, led by Bennet I. Omalu, MD, from the University of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania, write. The fact that most of these deaths occurred at least 1 year after surgery suggests that “careful follow-up, especially the need to recognize and treat depression, should be provided for patients who have undergone bariatric (gastric bypass) surgery,” they write.

The private jet crash:

The plane that crashed, killing 4, is owned by Global Exec Aviation, a Long Beach-based charter company, and was certified to operate last year, an NTSB official said.

DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, has been released from the hospital after suffering injuries from a plane crash that killed four people last week, his rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.

“Adam Goldstein has been released from Doctors hospital,” the rep said in a statement. “While he is deeply saddened by the events he is thankful for all of the love and support he has been receiving from fans and friends world wide. We ask that you continue respect his privacy as he rests and heals and mourns the loss of his friends”.

Adam arrived back home on Thursday – by bus.

“That might tell you something about his desire to use or not use airplanes in the future,” Perez said.
But while DJ AM has returned, fellow passenger and TRVSDJ-AM musical collaborator, Travis Barker remains in the hospital.
“[Adam] just said to me to pray for Travis, so that makes me a little concerned that Travis’ injuries might be more severe than his were,” Perez said.

One of the first responders to the crash has said that Barker and DJ AM escaped the flaming wreckage by sliding down the jet’s wing.

“They said the plane went down. They didn’t say how or if they knew,” Lt. Jason Shumpert of the South Congaree Police Department told the Associated Press. “Once it went down, they were able to slide down the wing of the plane, and they jumped on each other to put fires on each other out and rolled around on the ground.”

Shumpert said he didn’t know until later that the two badly burned men were former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and celebrity disc jockey DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein. One of their doctors at a Georgia burn hospital said he expects them to fully recover from their second- and third-degree burns.

A video of the Friday night crash scene shot from Shumpert’s police car shows an inferno next to the road, with screams ringing out above the din of sirens of ambulances and fire trucks. Shumpert said the screaming voice belonged to Barker, who was trembling and seemed to be in intense pain as he sat on the sidewalk, waiting for medical help to arrive.

“Travis, you could tell he was in pain,” Shumpert said. “He just kept saying: ‘That’s my friends in the plane, that’s my friends in the plane.’”

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board have not said what caused the crash. A cockpit voice recorder revealed that crew members thought a tire blew and tried to abort the takeoff. The Learjet shot off the end of the runway, ripped through a fence and crossed a highway before coming to rest, engulfed in flames.

NTSB officials, who have recovered pieces of tire from the runway, planned to return to Washington on Thursday. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., which made the tires, has said it is cooperating with the investigation.

“It was divine intervention that they got out,” he said. “They should be commended for being able to get out and keep their heads together.”

“Since both Barker and Goldstein are in overall good health and didn’t suffer from any other crash-related complications, a full recovery is expected,” said Dr. Fred Mullins of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors’ Hospital in Augusta at a Sunday morning press conference.

Mullins added that recovery from such burns can take as long as a year.

A few months later he launched a lawsuit against the insurance companies that insured the pilots.

TMZ has just obtained documents from the suit DJ AM filed, and he's asking for $20 million dollars... minimum.

DJ AM wants at least $10 million in damages for medical bills, lost earnings and profits and other economic damages, and another $10 million for mental and physical pain he suffered and other "non-economic losses."
