29 year old ex-husband of Amy Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil takes a job as a drug councelor.
Blake Fielder-Civil who’s spent 32 months in Leeds Armley jail is taking an up-paid job as a drug councelor 2 days a week.
Daily Mail reports “is this advisable” that Blake Fielder-Civil takes a job as a drug councellor?
Is that really advisable? Amy Winehouse’s jailed ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil to work as a drugs counselor.
Dead singer Amy Winhouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil is to begin advising addicts at a rehab centre this week.
The former junkie will offer the service as part of a day release programme.
The 29-year-old will take up the unpaid post for two days per week initially.
“Blake is squeaky-clean now and even off heroin substitute methadone. He’s a reformed character,’ a family friend told the Sun On Sunday.
‘He will make an ideal counselor due to his experiences.’
‘He was asked if he wanted a job and jumped at the chance,’ they added.
Blake has so far spent 32 months at Leeds Armley jail for the burglary which fueled his drugs habit.
Winehouse’s father Mitch has previously credited Blake with getting his daughter addicted to hard drugs.
Blake divorced the Rehab singer two years before she died of alcohol poisoning last July.
He is currently involved with 33-year-old Sarah Aspin, with whom he has a nine-month-old son.
Amy won her first posthumous award at the Grammys earlier this month.
She was honoured for her duet with Tony Bennett on the track Body and Soul.
After a huge round of applause, her father, Mitch, addressed the audience.
He said: ‘We shouldn’t be here. Our darling daughter should be here. But these are the cards that were dealt.’
A special mention of Amy was also made at the BRIT Awards on Tuesday.
There are two types of people who become substance abuse counselors. There are those who have a desire to help someone and those who have walked in their shoes or both.
Through education and/or life experience, substance abuse counselors can help a drug addict recover and live a responsible life in society. As a former drug addict himself, would it benefit other addicts if Blake Fielder-Civil takes a job as a drug councellor? Time will tell.
