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.

Teach Your Children to Give Back

You’ve noticed it in the stores already. Aisles are stocked with notebooks, pencils and the latest cool learning gadgets to ready your kids for the classroom. Soon your kids will be back to school honing their math, science and English skills. But before they hit the books, there’s one lesson they can learn at home—giving back to their community. Here’s what you can teach your kids about giving.

Practice What You Preach
You may think your kids aren’t listening to you, but believe it or not, they’re paying attention more than you know. So when it comes to teaching your kids to give to their community, be their model to follow. If they see that you are willing to help others, they will follow in your footsteps.

Start Small
Your kids don’t have to save the world to make a difference. Cleaning up the local park, making a sandwich for a homeless person, or helping an elderly person with some chores are easy places to start. Let your children take a leading role in choosing the volunteer project. The more ownership they have, the more they’ll put into the experience.

Make a Plan
Once your kids have an interest in giving back, make it a routine activity. This is a good way for your family to spend some quality time together. Plus, after your kids grow out of the small stuff maybe they will, in fact, change the world.
