More than just a referral service

But Nuçi’s Space is more than simply a referral service. It is an active participant in the treatment program. There are no therapists on staff but there are caring fellow musicians who understand the intricacies of life in the music world. When someone calls or walks into Nuçi’s Space as often happens, the staff becomes a part of his life’s journey. In subtle, private ways the Nuçi’s Space program begins. As a sensitive good listener, the staff member hears the concerns of the musician and when deemed appropriate directs him to a professional. From this moment on the musician is encouraged to be at Nuçi’s Space and to use the Space as a support system through hard times as well as easy times.

Supporting the treatment

For someone who is feeling lonely, confused, and hopeless the hours and days between therapy sessions can be interminable. For someone who is put on medication, there is often no lasting relief until the medicine takes effect or until the right medicine is found and regulated. This can take as long as six weeks. It has been demonstrated repeatedly since the facility opened that the Nuçi’s Space concept of getting proper professional treatment and supporting that treatment with a healthy place that nurtures and supports can be exceedingly therapeutic and perhaps even life saving.
