Community Substance Misuse

Our dedicated Substance Misuse teams provide advice on safer drinking, support with clinical alcohol detoxification, substitute prescribing and wellbeing screening. Is tenacity your middle name?

We lead as an expert clinical partner across various sites in the North of England, with capable clinicians known for their expertise, wellbeing focus, outreach, and partnership working.

Superb multi-disciplinary teamwork across complex geographies means our Substance Misuse teams are renowned for excellence in care. In 2018, North Yorkshire Horizons became the first SMS provider to ever be awarded an OUTSTANDING status by the CQC. Working with our partners, Spectrum provides a range of support, including help with clinical alcohol detoxification, substitute prescribing, relapse prevention support/medication, and wellbeing screening & vaccinations for blood-borne viruses (BBVs).

Our aim is to help individuals to be free from alcohol and/or drug addiction, giving them the correct tools to make the right choices and regain control of their lives. Do you think you have what it takes to join the team and help these individuals?


Everyone on the team shares the same conviction to help patients as much as we can – we have the same goals.
