Who We Are

North Yorkshire Horizons is a drug and alcohol recovery service provided, on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council.

Horizons is a partnership of by HumankindChanging Lives and Spectrum CIC.  Our aim is to help as many people as possible to recover from and be free from drug and alcohol dependency. We want to reduce the harm that is caused to individuals, families and communities. We use flexible, wraparound services to focus on clients’ needs. We support them to reduce or end their substance misuse and to rebuild their lives.

We offer access to experienced and professional teams who work with you on your journey to recovery from drugs and/or alcohol.

When you join the service, you will be allocated a key worker who will support you throughout your treatment and help you develop a Recovery Plan, that’s built around you and your circumstances. The recovery journey also draws upon our charity’s expertise in community and family work, residential rehabilitation, and employment support.

We work with people from the start of their recovery journey right through to completion. Workers have found that this aftercare helps you to maintain the changes you have made.
