Amy Winehouse ‘drug-free for a year’, says Mitch Winehouse

Singer's father tells the Home Affairs committee his daughter's clean

Amy Winehouse hasn’t taken drugs for a year, her father has told the Home Affairs Committee.

Mitch Winehouse was speaking to MPs during a discussion of the cocaine trade when he made the comments – he’s currently making a documentary about rehabilitation services for heroin addicts.

Criticising drug rehab provisions for the poor, he said Amy Winehouse was lucky they could afford private treatment.

“We were very fortunate – we were able to afford the best doctors, clinical psychologists, rehabilitation and hospitals,” Mitch Winehouse said, according to BBC News.

Amy Winehouse has spent much of the past year on the Caribbean island of St Lucia.
