Rumor has it that Amy Winehouse is going to fly to Israel to enter a rehab center within the next few weeks. Wino will apparently undergo "very short, intensive and effective treatment," which will cost about $12,800 at the Barzilai Medical Centre.
Eliezer Cohen, chairman of the Israel Anti-Drug Authority, claims the clinic agreed to treat Wino 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."
He added, "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."
