Amy Winehouse is reportedly set to to attempt “hardcore rehab” with controversial Israeli Doctor, Andre Waismann, who has been dubbed ‘Dr Wash’ for his clean-up skills. The singer, 24, has been persuaded to see Waismann, whose unconventional method — pumping his patients with a drug which blocks the brain’s craving for cocaine so they have no withdrawal symptoms when conscious — takes as little as four hours.
He claims to have helped 3,000 heroin junkies nail their addiction with his swift but controversial treatment. And has insisted: “I can cure her.” It was claimed earlier this week that the Rehab singer was planning to fly to Israel to see the doctor, but Amy’s parents, Janis and Mitch, have confirmed they are fixing an appointment with Waismann to visit the star in England over the next couple of weeks.
Janis says, “We want to get Amy to meet up with him when he’s here. We’ve heard he has done a lot of great work.” Mitch said, “If the drugs thing gets sorted her life will turn around.” Dr Waismann, who is jetting in from Tel Aviv to talk to the Department of Health, said: “I feel desperately sorry for Amy. I want to help her. I know I can help her. I am ready to meet her.” Source
