Amy Winehouse Goes To Rehab In Israel
Eliezer Cohen, chairman of the Israel Anti-Drug Authority, claims the clinic agreed to treat the 24-year-old following a request from her management. He says, "They spoke to a renowned Israeli institution and an Israeli professor who conducts a very special and effective method. She has requested to come to him to do this method, since it's a method that is suitable for her."
Winehouse - who will receive 36 hours of treatment - will be treated by Andre Waismann, who promises success. He says, "All of my patients are discharged healthy and no longer dependent. There is a misunderstanding about drug addiction. People think it is a social and psychological problem, but it's a neurological problem. Whether it's Amy Winehouse or anyone else, it is a privilege to be able to treat anyone who is opiate-dependent, and allow them to live a normal life."
It is not the first time Winehouse has sought help for her addiction: Winehouse, who has faced a long and public battle against drugs and alcohol, checked into a rehab clinic in London in January after a video showing her allegedly taking a variety of illegal substances was passed on to British newspaper The Sun.
