It's been five years since soulful singer Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning.
The charity her family founded in her name decided to honor the anniversary by opening a home for women recovering from alcohol and drug addiction.
Officials from the Amy Winehouse Foundation told The Guardian they decided to create "Amy's Place" because there aren't enough women-specific drug addiction services in the U.K. These facilities are important to ensure the women's protection from ex-partners or dependency on men.
