The Amy Winehouse Foundation for Drug Addiction Therapy may become a reality if the singer’s father, Mitch, has anything to say about it.
Mitch Winehouse, 60, announced that he aims to set up an organization to help teens to combat their addiction to drugs with the help of British Member of Parliament Keith Vaz.
For the sake of her family, Amy had defeated her battle with drug addiction three years ago, according to her father. She was also planning on becoming sober. It was the happiest he had seen her “for years,” he said. Amy died Saturday at the age of 27. Her autopsy was inconclusive, and there will likely be no further explanation for her death for another four weeks.
Mitch said at Amy’s funeral Tuesday that she had told him, “Dad I’ve had enough, I can’t stand the look on your and the family’s faces any more.”
