Updates to Service Delivery by Heartland RADAC due to COVID - 19


It is the intention of Heartland RADAC to continue serving clients to the best of our ability, while adhering to the restrictions of the Statewide Stay at Home Order No 20-16, issued by Governor Kelly, which went into effect on March 30, 2020.

In order to continue providing services, Heartland RADAC has made a few adjustments to allow us to continue working with clients by phone and telemed/video, while maintaining the social distancing requirements due to COVID – 19.   

All Assessments, Case Management, Peer/Recovery Coaching and Treatment will be performed via phone and/or video depending on the technology available. 

When you call in to the agency main number, our schedulers will ask you a series of questions to make sure you have the ability to complete an assessment.  Once scheduled,  our staff will assist you in getting connected to you based on your responses to the following questions.   

Questions re: technology will include: 

1) Do you have the ability to download an app on your computer or phone? 

2) If yes – are you willing to download the app needed to complete a service via video. 

3) Do you have an email? Are you currently able to retrieve emails? 

4) What is your contact number we can reach you? 

5) Is there an identified Voicemail, where we can leave a confidential message? 

Please call us at 913-789-0951 or 1-800-281-0029 to schedule an assessment.

Make a New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep

With the New Year right around the corner, many of us may be thinking about our resolutions for 2011. Common New Year’s Resolutions range from losing weight and eating right to reducing stress and finding a better job. The average resolution lasts 72 hours or less, so by January 3 we’re back to our old ways. Your New Year’s Resolutions don’t have to be grandiose to make 2011 a great year. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Get more Z’s.
Sleep may be one of the most important things a person needs. Yet, according to research done by the CDC, 70 percent of adults don’t get the sleep they need. The average adult needs between seven and nine hours of sleep each night. If you’re one of those not getting enough sleep, find out what contributes to your lack of sleep. Working on the computer and watching TV right before bed can be a culprit.

Give blood.
A pint of blood can save three lives. If you don’t fear the needle, donating blood is one of the easiest ways to give. It takes less than an hour and you can donate about every 56 days. For a little over six hours a year you’ve saved nearly 17 lives, and one of those may just be your own.

How many sodas do you consume in a day? If you recycle just one can you are saving enough energy to power a TV for three hours. It takes from 80 to 100 years for a can to decompose in a landfill. With the average human producing 4.7 pounds of trash per day, most of it is recyclable or compostable. If you haven’t checked into recycling in a while, companies have made more easy and affordable than ever.
