T3 Young Person's Substance Misuse Service - Staffordshire

young people legs

T3 is a free and confidential service for young people up to 18 years old in Staffordshire (excluding Stoke-on-Trent).

We 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 co-ordination.

How to contact us

We always welcome new clients, so please get in touch if you are interested in getting help from the service or you’d just like to ask some questions. Feel free to bring someone with you on your first visit.

You can call us on 01785 241 393 or email us on


We only accept referrals for young people where they are aware of the referral and wish to see a project worker; this should be explored with the young person prior to any referral. 

We also accept referrals either directly from the young person, their family or friends. Again a referral would only be accepted where the young person is aware of and consents to the referral. The normal route of family and self- referral is via phone contact at the office. The case would then be allocated and the project worker will be in touch. 

We endeavour to assess all new referrals within five days of referral. To make a referral please call 01785 241393 or use the attached referral forms.

What do our service users and professionals say about us?

"MM stated she has a better relationship with mum and dad since working with T3 and has learned how to stay safe when she is out with friends." 

"Steve and Adam were both fantastic with the young people and were able to deliver the information as well as provide a fun atmosphere which kept the girls engaged.  The girls benefited from the session and now have a much better understanding of the substances they are regularly exposed to."

We are happy to receive feedback and actively seek it from Young People and Professionals, as we feel this is the only way we can truly evolve to meet individual needs. Please feel free to use the feedback forms in the Documents section.

Please note that the service has no fixed address for young people to visit.  We are happy to meet young people in locations that best suit their needs: home, school, college, YOS etc.

The admin office is open 9am - 5pm on weekdays, however the service runs purely around the need of the service user so staff work with young people at hours and venues that suit them; evening and weekends are available as appropriate
