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?

Happy Birthday, America

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” – Declaration of Independence

Happy 234th birthday America. That’s a lot of candles to put on a cake. It certainly would brighten the sky as well as the fireworks we’ll see this weekend.

July 4 marks the anniversary of the day the Second Continental Congress approved a resolution of independence from Great Britain. The document, prepared by a committee of five with the chief author Thomas Jefferson, was known as the Declaration of Independence.

Our founding fathers even gave us direction as to how to celebrate. John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, “It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance…It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

As we celebrate this weekend, we encourage you to reflect on what it means to you to be an American. We are still a relatively young country and yet our influence is seen throughout the world. While it existed prior to the founding of our nation, philanthropy is uniquely American.

Our nation was built on neighbors helping neighbors for the greater good. Ben Franklin himself was known to be a generous person in his actions toward all. Franklin said of the Revolution to the French, “We are fighting for the dignity and happiness of human nature.”

So this week, we pause to reflect on the hundreds of volunteers and donors who have given countless hours and thousands of dollars to fight for our cause that has ultimately advanced the happiness of those we serve. Know that you have illuminated our lives with your generosity.
