Welcome to Heartland RADAC...

Heartland RADAC provides an array of services to individuals confronting alcohol and drug issues. We can provide information and assistance to individuals seeking information either for themselves, a loved one, co-worker or client.

Similar to individuals with other types of illness, those with substance use disorders may choose to make changes in order to improve their life. Sometimes this decision can be made on their own behalf, other times through community support, formalized treatment or as part of a requirement of some other system such as the courts or social services.

Heartland RADAC’s services are designed to assist individuals in addressing substance use disorders so that their recovery can begin.

Be Kind to Humankind Made Easy

In 1988 Lorraine Jara read in her local newspaper that a boat drove past two other boats that needed help, but they didn’t stop to help. This didn’t sit well with Jara, so she created “Be Kind to Humankind Week.” It starts on August 25th and goes through August 31st and each day has a special theme. Her holiday has received praise from the likes of Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr. and Oprah. Here are the themes for each day and a few ideas on how you can participate.
