The Amy Winehouse Foundation Is Honoring Her Memory In The Best Possible Way

by Grace Easterby


Five years after the jazzy blues singer passed away from alcohol poisoning, The Amy Winehouse Foundation is opening a rehab transitional center focused on women. This center will service women leaving rehab by helping them adjust before living independently. There is currently only one other women-only recovery house in London, so the additional beds provided by Amy’s Place are much needed.

The facility, opening August 22, has room for 16 women aged 18 to 30 years old and will focus on relapse prevention. Jane Winehouse, Amy’s stepmother, told The Guardian, “This project will make such a profound difference to so many young women, enabling them to have a safe environment in which to rebuild their lives and put into practice all the learning they have acquired through their treatment journey. Fresh starts are difficult to make, full of challenges, but at Amy’s Place, we will give young women the tools and support to help make this a reality.”

This is a beautiful way to honor Amy while acknowledging a much-needed service for women struggling with addiction.
