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.

The Vacation You May Have Never Dreamed Of

Summer is right around the corner and in your mind you may be on the beach already. Before you slather on the sunscreen, you may want to consider a different kind of getaway this year. Rather than a traditional vacation, you could rejuvenate yourself by volunteering your time to a nonprofit. This has become so popular they’ve even coined the term “voluntourism” to promote the notion.

There are numerous opportunities with various organizations from researching whales to teaching English to children. You could build houses, plant flowers or even help prevent disease.

Once you’ve determined what kind of volunteering you want to do, it’s time to research a nonprofit organization whose mission matches your passions. A volunteer vacation can whisk you away to foreign lands or you can stay right in your hometown.

Many nonprofits offer volunteer vacation packages and the programs are specifically outlined on their websites, including the length of time you would need to devote. With some organizations you may have to work with them to create a specific plan.

If you decide to travel a long distance, you will likely be responsible for the costs associated with the travel, including lodging. Some programs may actually cost to participate but know that the money goes to promote the mission of the organization.

You may not see the largest ball of twine, but a volunteer vacation may be one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences you will ever have.
