Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein's Thursday memorial at The Hollywood Palladium was fashioned after a 12-step meeting, drawing a notable pair of celebrities -- Robert Downey Jr. and Lindsay Lohan -- whose substance abuse issues have been well-documented.

Attendees were free to participate in the 12-step process, and able to speak with anonymity, due to the nature of the meeting; the 36-year-old Goldstein, a recovering crack cocaine addict during his 20s, was working on a reality show to help others with their addictions before his Aug. 28 death in Manhattan, New York.

Goldstein allegedly relapsed into addiction, developing a severe anxiety medication habit after surviving a plane crash with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker in South Carolina in Sept. 2008. The NY Post reported that Goldstein was slated to check into a California rehab clinic after a Friday show he was scheduled to perform at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
