I am Nuçi’s Space

We want to share stories of how our staff and programs help our community. Below is a letter from a member of our community that has been a year sober. We commend their hard work and wish them continued success. We are always here to help.

Thank you, Lesley and everyone involved in keeping our community well.

Friday, January 27, 2017

Hello Lesley,

I wanted to thank Nuci’s Space and you in particular for being instrumental in facilitating the beginning of my recovery process in January of 2016. Last week, on January 14, 2017, I picked up a blue chip in AA. I would have never believed I could experience a year without substance let alone a day. It has been a tremendous year of growth, discovery and made a world of difference in my life.

When I walked through the door at Nuci’s Space last year a broken human being, I was entirely without resource. Facing the insurmountable expense of attending the six-week treatment program at The Athens Area Commencement Center, I was without direction. That is until I remembered my community of Athens, GA is blessed by the presence of a first-class musician’s outreach center in Nuci’s Space.

You played an integral and unforgettable role in connecting me with Music Cares in Nashville who provided a support grant that covered 50% of the cost of treatment. I can’t underscore the importance of having you make this connection because I would have otherwise never known about it. That grant, coupled with the support of my friends and family through a capital campaign, saw to it that I would enter the program, graduate successfully and go on to maintain a year’s sobriety (and counting).

I have been transformed as a person, a father, a husband, a musician and a human being as a result of your assistance. I understand that making and maintaining the commitment has been my choice, however, were it not for Nuci’s Space, I’m fairly certain I’d still be out there in active addiction.

Following treatment at AACC, you also facilitated a subsidized, 12-session counseling period at the Carson Center for which I am also grateful. Once the veil of abuse has been lifted, there remains a lot of work to be done on the mind. I was able to benefit greatly from these counseling sessions which helped to stabilize and enrich my quality of life.

I am the father of a 3 year old son. If not only for myself, my sobriety is profound for his benefit as he will never know his father to be suffering in active addiction.

In short, Nuci’s Space is a beautiful, compassionate, caring and hugely significant institution in this community and beyond. To you I give thanks and deserved praise.

Keep doing what you’re doing. Stories like mine will continue to visit you ten fold.

Thanks DBT & Bitter Southerner!

Drive-By Truckers & Bitter Southerner teamed up on this great shirt.

We want to express our sincere thanks to Drive-By Truckers and Bitter Southerner! They are donating the proceeds of this awesome t-shirt.

You guys are the best and we love you.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

[Nuci’s Space] is a fine organization, and it has long been enthusiastically endorsed by one of our favorite bands, the Drive-By Truckers.

So we’ve worked with the DBT organization to create this special, limited-edition T-shirt. Two things to know about it:

For every T-shirt we sell, $10 will go to Nuci’s space.
These will be available only in The Bitter Southerner General Store — and only through Dec. 31.

This is your chance to get a collector’s item into your closet — and some money into an organization with a demonstrated track record of helping folks who need it.
