Amy Winehouse Makes the Right Choice and Enters Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Dear Amy Winehouse,
My first thoughts were to respect your privacy when I heard you entered a drug and alcohol rehab but I've changed my mind. You should be commended because admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. Like myself, you've had a difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol.
Your talents amaze me. "Back to Black" was a smash sensation that carried your voice worldwide. The song "Rehab", showed that you'd rather look substance abuse in the eye rather than hide from the pain and suffering of chemical dependency. Your referral to Mr Hathaway in that song, "Because there's nothing you can teach me that I can't learn from Mr Hathaway", made me think you were considering suicide as he did.
I'm writing this letter to tell you there is hope but you can't do it alone. Addiction is the only disease that tells you you're not sick. It's, "cunning, powerful, and baffling." Please stay in rehab. You're in the right place. Like yourself I didn't get it the first time but lucky for me the alcohol rehab I entered, Brighton Hospital in Brighton Michigan welcomed me back with open arms. I can honestly say I'm not sure where I'd be today if it weren't for their kindness, support, and intensive in-patient and out-patient guide to treating my disease. I'm sure the alcohol treatment center you've chosen, The Priory Clinic, will give you all the tools required to getting your life back on track.
I'll keep you in my prayers.
