'Glee' remembers Cory Monteith with special episode.

Posted:

FOX's hit series "Glee" will address the death of star Cory Monteith in a special episode tonight.  Monteith died in July from a drug overdose, ending his personally-admitted long fight with addiction.

Though Monteith's character, Finn Hudson, will reportedly not die from an overdose, the show will thematically address the issue.  A PSA will air during the special episode of GLEE airing on Thursday, Oct. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. 

If you or a loved one is battling addiction, there is help available. Please visit http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ for more information.  You can also call 211 to find local resources that can help.

Outside of GLEE, Monteith worked closely with several charitable organizations, devoted to helping people effect positive change in their lives. In honor of his passing, the following groups will be accepting donations in his name:

You can also go to fox.com/cory to learn more about the groups and to light a virtual candle for Monteith on Twitter.

FOX28 News will follow 'Glee' with special reports on drug abuse in our area.
