(Newser) – She can say 'No, no, no' all she wants, but Amy Winehouse checked into a treatment program in London to ready herself for summer performances in Europe, according to her spokesman. It was not clear what treatment she'll get, only that she's there on "doctors' advice." London's Priory Clinic offers treatment for a range of psychiatric problems, as well as drug and alcohol addiction.

Winehouse's breakthrough disc, 2006's Back to Black, won her five Grammy Awards and helped her achieve worldwide stardom, but her music has been overshadowed by drug use and legal run-ins. Winehouse has not released much music since, but she performed a short tour in Brazil in January.
