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.

After the Pomp and Circumstance Head Out and Volunteer

After the Pomp and Circumstance, what will be your circumstance? If you’re going to be a college graduate, you’re wrapping up the final finals of your college career and preparing to enter the real world (if life hasn’t felt real enough). Your parents have probably asked; and we will too, “What are you going to do with your life?”

You may not even know what you want to do with your life, or you’re testing the waters of a turbulent job market where thousands of your fellow grads are clamoring for the same positions. While you’re pondering your options, there is one that oftentimes gets overlooked. Volunteering may be the best way to use your skills, find some new ones and ultimately land your next job in your new career. Here are some good reasons why new graduates should volunteer.

Resume Builder
One of the easiest ways to boost your resume is by adding some volunteer experience. Volunteering shows potential employers that you are a well-rounded person and care about your local community. It also allows you to use the skills you have been crafting the past few years while in school.

Skill Builder
Along with using the skills you already have, volunteering will give you the opportunity to develop new ones in a more relaxed environment. Maybe you have a background in finance, but want to try your hand at marketing or event planning. Volunteering provides an opportunity to try on many different hats, which may lead to a new career choice. At least it will show potential employers that you are flexible and willing to try new things.

Network Builder
Who else volunteers? Business owners; and other influential people. But you won’t know unless you ask. This means that while you’re volunteering shoulder-to-shoulder, you need to get to know those working with you. Additionally, if you’re working hard, people will notice. It may just be the quickest way to get a foot in the door for your new career.
