NEW YORK- Although official autopsy results haven't been revealed in the death of Amy Winehouse, one thing that the world does know: addiction problems plagued this young, talented musician.

The death of Ms. Winehouse has shown the world that addiction problems are a global issue, not isolated to any particular geographical area or specific demographic profile. It's a problem that the world must conquer, together.

The death of Amy Winehouse brings addiction to the forefront and the attention of the world, begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center.

Her death is a terrible tragedy and shows the importance of keeping the lines of communication open with young people about the dangers of alcohol and drugs.
