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.

Why You Should Laugh More

Children laugh about 300 times a day. The average adult? Only four times a day. As our lives become heavy with responsibilities and serious matters, we forget to simply laugh. That childhood wonder and positivity fades throughout life, but it’s truly important to infuse more laughter throughout the day. Laughing affects our mind and body in beneficial ways. Here are a few reasons why you should laugh more:

Increases creativity—Laughing, like smiling, can trick your mind into feeling relaxed in tense situations. If you’ve been experiencing writer’s block or a brief stunt in creativity, infuse more humor in your work day.

Decreases stress—Studies have shown that laughing reduce levels of stress hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine and dopamine. Laughing also increases endorphins, infection-fighting antibodies and improves blood flow to the heart.

Enlivens your life—Laughter can help us see life with a glass half full outlook. Laughing frequently enlivens us, increases positive thinking and optimism, as well as making us friendlier.
