Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse, wants to build a center for addicted youth.
Mr. Winehouse plans to meet with a Home Office minister to ask for support and to discuss treatment and rehabilitation services.
Mr. Winehouse's efforts will be supported by his late daughter's managers, Raye Cosbert and Trenton Harrison-Lewis, and Sarah Graham, a former cocaine abuser and addiction expert.
Ms. Graham plans on fighting for it with all she has and argues:
We didn't know it (Amy's death) was going to happen but we hope it will show people that addiction is something that can kill people when they are very young and that we should not wait until it is too late. As a rich country we should be able to afford a rehabilitation centre for young people and we don't think charities should pay for it totally.
Yes! We are definitely loving this idea.
Best of luck to you guys; We hope it happens!
