Where we see you

Telford STaRS works with young people in a variety of different ways. We do lots of outreach which means we come to you. We know that the people who work with us like to see us in a range of settings and we are mindful of getting it right between easy access and maintaining confidentiality.

Our recovery teams include recovery workers, nurses, doctors, recovery champions, recovery mentors, community connectors and administrators – so we have lots of experience and expertise to help you reach the goals you want to achieve.

At Telford STaRS we believe that everyone can change their lives for the better, and we work with you by encouraging you to look at not just your drug or alcohol use but the wider health and wellbeing issues, which we can support you with.

We have a range of interventions to meet your needs – big or small

Our main focus is to meet your needs and one of the ways we do this is by providing high quality interventions that work. We know that being able to act fast is really important to you and we understand the importance of making sure the care and goals we agree with you are right for you.
