Celebrity rehab ‘The Causeway Retreat’ on Osea Island in Essex has been fined £8,000 and has been called “scandalously negligent” by a judge for running an unregistered rehab clinic. This is the same rehab centre that was once had Amy Winehouse as a client.
Reports from BBC say that the firm has admitted to running the clinic without a license along with another unregistered clinic in Colchester.
Judge David Cooper was not impressed with the standards in the clinic saying that they “”would really shame a third world country”.
In addition to the £8,000 fine, Judge Cooper ordered that the firm pay £30,000 in costs.
Winehouse has not commented on the operations of the clinic.
