Welcome to Heartland RADAC...

Heartland RADAC provides an array of services to individuals confronting alcohol and drug issues. We can provide information and assistance to individuals seeking information either for themselves, a loved one, co-worker or client.

Similar to individuals with other types of illness, those with substance use disorders may choose to make changes in order to improve their life. Sometimes this decision can be made on their own behalf, other times through community support, formalized treatment or as part of a requirement of some other system such as the courts or social services.

Heartland RADAC’s services are designed to assist individuals in addressing substance use disorders so that their recovery can begin.

No Shadow of Doubt that Groundhog Day Provides Tips for Event Planners

Punxsutawney Phil will emerge from his winter slumber on February 2 to prognosticate to the fine citizens of the Pennsylvania burg an early spring or six more weeks of winter. No pressure. Groundhog Day has been celebrated since the 18th century, and started by Germans in Pennsylvania. Today, more cities join in festivals and celebrations for the day.

Everyone loves a reason to celebrate. Lesser holidays, especially during the winter months, like Groundhog Day, St. Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day give us opportunity to host events that break up the monotony of winter. This year, consider promoting a nonprofit when you host your winter holiday. Instead of asking people to bring food to share, encourage them to donate to a cause you care about. Here are some tips for hosting an event.

Letting guests know.
When you invite your guests make sure to let them know the goal of your event. Provide them information about the nonprofit organization that you are supporting. The more information they have the more likely they will be to give. You may want to invite some people from the organization you are supporting. They will be able to speak about the organization and volunteer opportunities.

Celebrate how?
Take a look at your guest list and your goals for the event to help you determine how you’ll entertain your guests. If it’s a family gathering, have activities for the kids and maybe some shoulder-to-shoulder activities that get the entire family involved. Most adult parties find success with good food and a few cocktails. Remember the holiday you’re celebrating, and your cause, to give you guidance on your theme.

Don’t let it end.
After your event, don’t forget to thank people for supporting your cause and let them know if you reached your goal. Make sure they know how their contributions helped a cause.

While Groundhog Day may have passed us by to have a winter event this year, rest assured that Punxsutawney Phil will give us six more weeks of winter to host a cause event.
