Amy Winehouse to enter rehab in Israel – Tabloid Hell
Singer to receive intensive treatment abroad
Amy Winehouse is set to fly to Israel for drug rehabilitation treatment.
The singer, who won an Ivor Novello songwriting award yesterday (May 22), is set to go back into rehab under the supervision of expert Andre Waismann.
Eliezer Cohen, the Chairman of Israel's Anti-Drug Authority, told The Sun: "Amy's people 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."
Professor Waismann is optimistic about the 'Rehab' star's chances, saying: "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."
