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.

August is a Month to Celebrate

We turn our calendars to August and we realize summer is nearing an end. Soon, children will be hitting the books, leaves will be under our feet and tailgates will be the weekend norm. Before the entire month slips away, consider celebrating a few of these August holidays with family and friends.

Happiness Happens Month
Happiness seems to be a moving target in our lives. But at the end of the day, most people report that good health, functioning relationships and satisfaction with how they spend their time, often associated with their work are the keys to happiness. Some may say that happiness happens when you’re having fun. So take time this month to recognize when you’re having fun. Plan happiness events with family and friends; and even take it the office. This can make you physically and mentally healthier. Volunteering can also provide opportunities for happiness to happen.

National Farmers’ Market Week
There are thousands of Farmers’ Markets across the nation and most offer locally grown fruits, vegetables and other handcrafted items. While you should visit your local farmers’ market frequently to get the freshest seasonal foods, August 7-13 is National Farmers’ Market Week so make sure you are getting out and enjoying the weather, company of others and the freshest food around.

World Humanitarian Day
The United Nations designated August 19 as World Humanitarian Day in 2008. The day recognizes the humanitarian needs worldwide and the need for cooperation internationally. The UN wanted a public way to explain what humanitarian aid work entails and remember those who have lost their lives in humanitarian service. You can observe the day in numerous ways including contacting public officials to show support and organizing or attending public events featuring humanitarian work.
