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.

Global Forgiveness Day Can Make You Happier

We’ve all been there. We’ve upset someone or have been mad at another at one point in our life. It may have been as small as an oversight of a birthday wish or a much more serious offense. If you still have some outstanding resentment against someone, maybe it’s time to burry the hatchet. August 27 is Global Forgiveness Day and a perfect opportunity to begin the process of healing.

Forgiveness is the process of stopping the anger and resentment toward another person for a perceived offense, difference or mistake. Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold onto the stress of anger.

Take a moment this week to think about reconciling differences. Pick up the phone and make a sincere apology to someone who’s perceived that you’ve done something wrong. Make a list of people you have offended and think about those who have offended you. Prioritize how you may approach those people.

If you want to think bigger, consider those issues hurt a portion of our society and see if you can formulate solutions to start making a difference. Maybe it’s volunteering for an organization that helps in your areas of concern.

While this is a one day holiday, it is something that you can practice year-round. Try it and see how much happier you are.
