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.

4 Reasons Why Facebook’s New “Donate Now” Button is Awesome

Facebook recently rolled out its new “Donate Now” button for nonprofits. The feature allows Facebook users to donate different amounts of money on the nonprofit’s page. The idea was developed when Facebook partnered with Red Cross to encourage charitable contributions to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts on the social media site. Currently the “Donate Now” button is being used by 12 large nonprofits, including Red Cross, the Nature Conservancy, Malaria No More, the American Cancer Society, and many other nonprofits will soon be added to this list. Here’s why this feature is so awesome:

1. You already spend a ton of time on Facebook. You get sucked into the social media vortex, and before you know it three hours have passed. Now you can make charitable contributions while you semi-stalk the people you went to high school with.

2. It’s incredibly easy. All you have to do is go to the page of the nonprofit, click the amount you want to donate ($10, $25, $50, $100, $250), enter your credit card information, and boom. You’ve helped to make a difference in someone’s life.

3. It’s a good kind of impulse spending. Let’s face it. We’ve all been there. You’re wasting time online, and three days later a box shows up on your doorstep with a $90 designer waffle iron because it seemed like a really good idea at the time. Now when you get the urge to drop some cash online, you can put it towards a good cause.

4. It’s a gateway for learning more about nonprofits. Their Facebook page provides a snapshot of their mission and recent events, but going to their website will give you an even better look at the work they’re doing. After learning more, you might be inspired to get involved in other ways. Before you know it, you could be one of their top volunteers.
