Amy Winehouse rehab

Posted on

Amy Winehouse checked in to a London rehab clinic on Wednesday, but not before downing a last bottle of vodka, according to People. In a statement, Winehouse’s rep said the singer “has embarked on a treatment program at the Priory Clinic. She wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctors’ advice.”

According to the magazine, Winehouse’s father was instrumental in getting his daughter to seek help, but that didn’t stop her from finishing a miniature bottle of Smirnoff on the way to checking in. “She’s determined, and this is all off her own back,” a source close to the singer told the magazine. “It’s just a lapse. There are ups and downs on the road, and there have been mostly ups recently. But this is a down and she’s done the right thing and gone to rehab.”
