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.

Planning a Gap Year? Make it Count.

Your senior year just started. Do you know what you’re going to do after graduation? It’s probably come up more than once in conversation. If you’re not ready for college, maybe a gap year is for you.

A gap year is that year break after finishing high school, prior to starting college. There are many programs designed to keep you learning about yourself while you’re still contemplating your options. These programs offer a number of opportunities to explore and gain valuable experience to take you into a more fulfilling college career.

Projects Abroad. With no set start or end dates, you can create your own schedule and destination. Projects Abroad has in-country staff and has placed over 25,000 volunteers throughout the world since 1997. They ensure you have host families and three meals a day.

LeapNow. This 9-month program combines education in the form of language, service and cultural immersion in India or South America. LeapNow includes a formal Rite of Passage that also involves the parents and a return home mid year for additional education opportunities.

AmeriCorps. Each year, AmeriCorps offers over 75,000 volunteer opportunities both in the United States and abroad. With several programs and varying time commitments in a number of areas of service, you’re sure to find a fit.

If you’re not into traveling abroad, there are plenty of local volunteer programs that will provide ample opportunity to grow while making a difference in your community.
