DETROIT (WWJ) - Singer Amy Winehouse’s autopsy results are in, and they’re inconclusive.  Locally, Henry Ford’s Maplegrove Rehab Director Tom Ghena tells WWJ that she may have benefited from a few more attempts at rehab.

“Each attempt is an opportunity to take those steps to go in the right direction, I know many people … there is a friend who told me that it took him 26 attempts at rehab to get into recovery,” said Ghena.

Ghena says many young people like Winehouse, who are addicted, really need friends and family to hold them accountable through the entire intervention process.
