Amy Winehouse’s Ex, As A Drug Counsellor

Amy Winehouse’s Ex, As A Drug Counsellor

Amy Winehouse’s ex, Blake Fielder-Cival, Will begin advising addicts at a rehab center, as part of his day release program.

Blake spent the last 32 months at Leeds-Armley Jail for burglary, which fueled his drug habit. Blake had a history with heroin, and Amy’s father accused him of getting his daughter into drugs. (Although, I must admit her father seemed to be in a lot of denial about her substance abuse problem at the time of her death, and this accusation seems loaded with denial about his daughter’s involvement.)

Blake is even off methadone now, and he jumped at the chance to work in the rehab center two days a week. According to Daily Mail, a friend of Blake’s said, “He is squeaky clean now. He will make an ideal counsellor, due to his experiences.”

Great way to give back, Blake.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
