Amy Winehouse taken to the hospital; put on IV drip

While Amy Winehouse’s rehab has reportedly been going well in terms of her commitment to the program, she is said to be suffering through a terrible detox. According to both the Daily Mail and The Sun, Amy had to be transported to the hospital and put on an IV drip because she was so dehydrated from throwing up.

Amy Winehouse is on a hospital drip after becoming dangerously dehydrated as she went "cold turkey" from drugs. The singer… was smuggled into a Harley Street clinic on Wednesday for treatment. A source close to the London Clinic, which is near the Capio Nightingale Hospital in Marylebone, where Winehouse is undergoing rehab, told The Sun: "Amy was looking very pale and thin.

"She looked ropey and exhausted. Let's hope she hasn't taken a turn for the worse." Her father, Mitch, 57, has said she is suffering "horrific" withdrawal symptoms. He said yesterday that she was "making progress" but that it would take a "long time".

Mitch Winehouse says that Amy originally went into rehab with the hopes of performing at the Grammys, but doesn’t think it will end up happening. He said, "I'm not sure the Grammys are going to happen. I don't want her to go, it might be a bit too soon for her. She's not well - that's why she's in rehab." Hopefully Amy will focus on her recovery more than anything else. If the Grammys are the carrot on the stick she needs to get her going, that’s great, but rehab should be the first priority.
