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.

Creative Ways to Help Charities Without Spending a Cent

Sometimes you don't have the money you want to help out your favorite charity. Your budget may be a little tight or maybe you've already spent your allotment for donations. There are still many ways you can help a charity without spending a cent.

The obvious is to donate your time. Most organizations need help and you probably have a skill that they need. For instance, if you are an accountant, you could manage the books. Or if you are an electrician, you could offer free service.

You can do a little extra in your online world. Place the website of your favorite charity or cause in the signature of your e-mail, especially if there’s a special event. Use your social media networks to spread the word about your cause. Some websites pay charities when you click on a button and view advertisements. In addition, GoodSearch pays nonprofits every time you conduct an internet search.

Use credit cards that have special programs that contribute proceeds to your charity of choice; and do business with companies that give back a percentage of sales to organizations you support. Or do some business of your own by having a garage sale or set up an eBay store. They have a system called Giving Works that allows you to donate the money and receive a tax deduction.

Try advertising your charity in subtle ways. Wear a t-shirt that showcases the organization when you go out or place a bumper sticker on your car.

There are many ways to give back to your favorite charity without spending cash, so get creative. And if all else fails, call the organization for more ideas.
