Alcohol and drugs: support and guidance

We are committed to providing a safe and healthy learning community where all students are able to make positive life choices. Any student can receive support for substance use issues both on and off campus via Student Services or Staffordshire Treatment and Recovery Service (Stars). There is also lots of good advice out there about drinking responsibly and honest information about drugs from Drugs & Me and Talk to Frank.

Whether you are affected by drug or alcohol misuse yourself or have a friend who is, it’s important to understand how to get help and the University’s approach to drugs and alcohol. We are committed to supporting our students with any misuse issues, and as such are currently developing a harm reduction policy. This will be available here soon, in the meantime, details of how to access support can be found by clicking the support button below.
