The troubled singer, who is being treated for her drugs addiction as an outpatient at London's Capio Nightingale Clinic, is "too sick" to battle her withdrawal symptoms alone and has been prescribed the medication to help her focus on Wednesday's performance (02.20.08).
A source told Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Amy would be far too sick if she was made to go cold turkey. Medics have accepted the important thing at the moment is to get Amy through the awards show."
Methadone is often prescribed to recovering heroin addicts to help patients battle their withdrawal symptoms.
The 24-year-old star will perform two songs at the London ceremony - 'Love Is A Losing Game' with her own band and then join Mark Ronson on stage for their BRIT Award-nominated hit 'Valerie'.
Meanwhile, Amy's husband Blake Fielder-Civil - who is currently awaiting trial on charges of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and grievous bodily harm (GBH) in a London jail - was rushed to the prison's hospital after a drugs overdose.
Blake, who recently failed three random drug tests, collapsed in his cell after taking what he thought was heroin.
Six other inmates were also hospitalized after taking the drug.
A Prison Service spokesman confirmed: "A small number of prisoners were treated in health care following the consumption of an unknown substance."
It has also been claimed Blake is swapping signed autographs of Amy to fellow inmates in exchange for heroin.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Blake has to pay for his gear somehow and has no qualms about cashing in on his wife's fame. He takes orders from other inmates then asks Amy to bring in signed photos of herself. He swaps them for a Joey - a hit of heroin, then the inmates sell them on the internet."
The troubled singer – who won five prizes at the prestigious US music ceremony on Sunday - wants Blake Fielder-Civil to display the trophy in his prison cell as a symbol of their love.
A source said: “Amy is planning to give Blake one of her beloved Grammy Awards to prove how much she loves him.”
Prison guards at London’s Pentonville Prison will check the golden gramophone-shaped prize thoroughly to make sure there is nothing hidden inside.
Security must also declare the statue can't be used as an offensive weapon.
Amy dedicated one of her five awards to Blake - who is currently awaiting trial on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice - on Sunday.
The 'Rehab' star – who performed at the ceremony from London via a satellite link due to problems with her getting a US visa – said: “This is for my mum, my dad and my Blake, my Blake incarcerated.”
The Grammy-award winning singer is a huge fan of the 'Rehab' star and has
revealed she will be there for the 24-year-old if she ever needs someone to
She said: "I have things to say to Amy Winehouse - loving things and things
she will be able to relate to."
However, Mary admits Amy - who was recently filmed smoking what appeared to
be crack cocaine - is not quite ready to seek professional help for her drug
Mary, who has battled her own drugs problem in the past, said: "I don't
really think she can hear me right now, because when I was in a situation
like she was in I couldn't hear people either."
The 'No More Drama' singer says she only realized she needed to get help
after seeing the effect drugs had had on her body.
She said: "I did drugs, I did a lot. I did things, not just weed, but beyond
that. I'm too strong to get hooked on anything now but at that point I think
I was hooked.
"Then one day I saw my reflection and I said to myself, 'Gosh, I look bad.'
That's when I really knew I needed help."
Mary's new single, 'Just Fine', is released on January 28.
Meanwhile Amy Winehouse went into rehab yesterday (01/24/08) after being given an
ultimatum by her record company.
The troubled singer - who was seen in video footage smoking what appeared to
be crack cocaine earlier this week - was reportedly told by Universal
Records boss Lucian Grainge to "get help or forget your career".
A Universal insider said: "Everyone has had rehab plans in place for her but
were waiting until she decided to get help.
Universal boss Lucian Grainge told her it was time to sort herself out.
"He said she wouldn't be going to the Grammy Awards, the BRITs or even
releasing another album until she did so."
A statement from her record company confirmed yesterday: "Amy decided to
enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management and
"She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to
continue her ongoing recovery from drug addition and prepare for her
upcoming appearance at the Grammy Awards. Amy entered the facility by mutual
agreement and continues to receive the full support of all concerned."
Amy, 24, was accompanied to London's Capio Nightingale Clinic in Marylebone
by her father Mitch, and looked confused and scared in a black top and
miniskirt as she was led into the facility.
Amy is expected to be well enough to perform at the Grammys in Los Angeles'
Staples Center on February 10.
footage was released of her allegedly smoking crack cocaine.
The troubled singer was taken to London's Capio Nightingale Hospital by her
concerned dad Mitch.
(See what he thinks here).
As she entered the top clinic, which has reportedly treated troubled rocker
Pete Doherty, she clutched a note from jailed husband Blake Fielder-Civil,
which read: "We'll get through this because I f***ing believe in us."
After assessments by specialists, Amy was taken home from the clinic by
Mitch but she must return for regular appointments.
“Amy is not in rehab,” singer's rep said. “She was seeing a doctor who she regularly sees as part of her ongoing treatment. It was a regular appointment which she attends all the time. She has not checked in overnight.”
Her spokesperson added: "She is in good spirits."
Amy was dealt another blow yesterday after Blake's mother insisted they
should get divorce because of the singer's bad influence on her son.
Georgette Fielder-Civil said: "I know Amy is hooked on drugs. That's her
problem. Her pals are a bad influence on her and she's a bad influence on
"I hope they go their own separate ways for their own good. I believe
divorce is the only answer."
Blake is currently in London's Pentonville Prison, awaiting trial on charges
of assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
