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.

  • Beautiful things grow when we work together for good.

A Word to the Wise About Giving Your Time

Deciding to volunteer is a great choice and a rewarding one at that. There are a few questions you should ask yourself as you embark on this new journey. These questions should ensure you get the most out of your volunteer experience.

What kind of organization do you want to help?
Explore your passions and there you will find the answer. Whether it’s animals you love, educating children or caring for the environment, there’s an organization that could use your help. To narrow down your choices, research the goals of your top nonprofits to make sure they align with yours.

What are you looking to gain from this experience?
Of course, volunteering is about giving back. But you should gain from the experience as well. Maybe you want to improve your skills to enhance your resume for a new job. Or maybe it’s time to network with a new group of people in your community. Regardless, thinking about yourself for a moment will mean you’ll have a lot more to give when it’s time to volunteer.

What are your skills?
Are you handy with tools? Do you have some legal experience? A specialized skill set you enjoy exercising could certainly benefit a nonprofit looking for volunteers with some experience in certain areas.

How much time do I have to give?
We’re all busy. From one organization to the next, the amount of time they will need you for will vary. Make sure you’re up front about your time commitment. You may want to start with a small commitment just to get a feel for how you like the organization and then you can give more of your time if appropriate.
