Amy Winehouse is struggling to remain drug-free in rehab – she almost quit the programme earlier this week, according to her father.
The Back To Black singer checked into a private London rehabilitation facility last month in a bid to kick her drug demons – but has found staying clean more difficult than she thought.
Her dad Mitch Winehouse said: “Amy has been through cold turkey but the worst is over. She had a wobble on Tuesday and wanted to leave. She’d started to feel better and thought, ‘What the hell am I doing here?’ That’s the danger period. The staff called me in and we spent time together. It was like she was a little baby and had started packing. I sat with her all night. We both cried a lot and Amy agreed to stay.”
And Mitch admits he grew so worried about his daughter’s heavy drug use in the weeks before she agreed to enter rehab, he thought about having her sectioned under the U.K.’s Mental Health Act.
He added: “I was so concerned for Amy’s life I looked at the possibility. She was killing herself – but I now think rehab has been the best thing for her.”
Winehouse left the clinic where she is being treated for drug addiction on Friday to begin preparing for her performance via satellite at Sunday’s rammy Awards.
But her spokesperson confirmed the star would continue to receive treatment and remain “under full medical supervision”.
