Reports that the singer Amy Winehouse will soon show up in Israel to undergo the Barzilai Medical Centre rehab program, which anaesthetizes addicts as they experience intense withdrawal symptoms,has been circulating in the local papers, courtesy of the London tittle tattle in the Sun and the Jewish Chronicle. The rumour has been quashed by the singer's handlers. Hopes of drug treatment for Winehouse are being revived, according to NME, but have no basis. The troubled singer has no intention of receiving an operation that stops her craving for narcotics and stimulants. Dr Andre Waisman, at the controversial clinic in Ashkelon, spoke to reporters about his $12,700 technique that treats opiate dependency as a neurological problem, with drugs and follow-up exercise. He has been running the program for a decade now, mainly for the post-Army crowd who sometimes return as addicts from their world travels.
