NEW YORK- On Monday, Mitch Winehouse, alongside other family members, appeared on CNN's Anderson Cooper show and discussed his daughter's life, death and struggle with drugs and alcohol.

In his first interview, Mitch stated that Amy had been clean for the past three years and that “her problem was alcohol”. In addition, he states that she had been taking the prescription drug Librium, daily, in an effort to decrease her chances of seizure as she detoxed from excessive alcohol use. His opinion is that Ms. Winehouse had a seizure and died from the complications of that seizure.

“The death of Ms. Winehouse brings to light the worldwide problem of alcoholism,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center . “The tragedy is, most certainly, a brilliant, talented life cut-short. Perhaps even more tragic, however, is that she recognized that she had a problem with drugs and alcohol and was sincerely seeking to fully recover. Our sympathy goes out to the Winehouse family. The world has truly lost a shining star.”
