t3 stars is a confidential service for young people up to 20 years old in Staffordshire (excluding Stoke-on-Trent).
We aims to help young people make informed choices about their alcohol and drug use, and to raise awareness of all the risks involved. This includes providing high quality and responsive support and assistance to parents and carers, schools, colleges, statutory services and other young person’s services and youth and community groups, enabling effective community treatment planning that reflects an inclusive approach to care coordination.
A team of qualified staff with specialist alcohol and drug knowledge and specific experience of working with young people provide an initial comprehensive assessment of need, therapeutic interventions and motivational support, care planning and care coordination and access to specialist prescribing pathways.
Our aims are to identify appropriate care pathways into treatment, support and education, which reflect individual need, and also to reduce the harm caused to the individual service users and the wider community
Making a referral?
We only accept referrals for young people where they are aware of the referral and wish to see a key worker; this should be explored with the young person prior to any referral.
We are more than happy to discuss issues/concerns you may have about a young person you know or are working with, and their suitability for a referral to t3 stars prior to a referral taking place. When the decision has been made to refer we would ask that the referrer complete a referral form, giving details of other professionals who are involved in working with the young person, problematic issues and current alcohol and/or drug use etc. We also accept referrals either directly from the young person, their family or friends.
We endeavour to assess all new referrals within five days of referral. To make a referral please call or email the contacts on the contact list below
