Winehouse family hopes to set up drug rehab center

The family of Amy Winehouse is seeking political backing to set up a drug rehabilitation center in her name.
The late singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, is meeting British politicians Monday to discuss a center aimed at young people.
He is due to have talks with crime minister James Brokenshire and opposition Labour politician Keith Vaz.
Drug treatment is currently offered through local health bodies, or at expensive private clinics. Rehabilitation workers say there is often a waiting list for the local bodies, while the latter is unaffordable for many.
Winehouse, who had struggled for years with drug and alcohol addiction, was found dead at her London home on July 23. The results of toxicology tests to determine the cause of death are due later this month.News..
