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.

No Sandy Beaches in Your Future? Volunteer this Spring Break

Spring break season is upon us and if you haven’t planned a getaway, there’s plenty to keep you busy. No matter your age or interest, there’s plenty of ways you can volunteer for spring break and improve your community. Here are a few ideas for all ages.

Impressionable Children
Children like to emulate those they look up to, and that includes you as their parents. If you model for them the importance of volunteering they will be more likely to volunteer throughout their lives. Talk with them and find an activity of interest. Maybe it’s volunteering at a local animal shelter to work with animals; or maybe your local parks department good use some help in planting flowers or cleaning up trails. While you may not get a spring break anymore, take a day to spend time volunteering with your kids.

High School Students
Rather than hang out at the local mall, consider finding an organization that operates a spring break program for kids. High school students make great role models for kids. Even if you spend just a few hours of your spring break helping others, you’ll feel you’ve had a productive spring break.

College Students
While you’d rather be at a popular spring break destination with friends than stuck at home, make the best of the situation. Round up a group of friends and help at a soup kitchen, nursing home or mentoring program. While you’re doing some good, you’ll also give your resume a boost. And next year consider a volunteer vacation where you can get away and give back at the same time.
