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.

Halloween Volunteering Ideas

Treat your community to supporting a local cause during the Halloween season. Fright people for a cause and use ghouls and goblins to a nonprofit’s advantage. Many schools, churches and community organizations offer Halloween-related volunteer opportunities. Have fun with fundraisers and volunteer opportunities during the Halloween season; don’t be afraid to dress up in a costume! Here are a couple Halloween volunteering ideas for an organization that you are passionate about:

Haunted house fundraiser—Easily set up a haunted house at any location with Halloween decorations like tombstones, cobwebs, mummies and pumpkins. Dim the lights, add a strobe light and ask volunteers to help as costumed characters to heighten the scare factor. Charge admission and hand out pamphlets educating visitors about the benefiting organization.

Corn maze fundraiser—To raise funds in a less scary way, host a corn maze fundraiser. Partner with a farm and land owner and ask volunteers to hand out water and serve apple cider. Offer hayrack rides and walkthroughs and charge admission for the benefiting local organization.

Trick or treat at hospitals—Don a Halloween costume and go help trick-or-treat at a local children’s hospital. Visit the hospital armed with scary ghost stories and lots of candy to entertain the kids. The children will be thankful for a funny or scary Halloween treat!
