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.

Finding Motivation to Volunteer

We all know that, sometimes, volunteering can be wearisome and there are days that we are tempted to skip our shifts. Even those compassionate people who would seemingly enjoy serving others as a career would sometimes rather stay home and vedge. So how do you beat it? This fall, try a few of these tips to find your niche within the wonderful world of volunteerism.

Find What You Love
It’s all about doing something that you genuinely enjoy. Love listening to the older generation banter on about life “back in the day?” Then look into volunteering at a nursing home or assisted living center. Love animals—everything from the little furry hamsters to the giant fluffy dogs? Consider volunteering at an animal shelter. Wherever you decide, make sure that it’s something you want to spend your time doing.

Feel Free to Change It Up
Another option to hold your interest in volunteering is to look to projects that don’t require a long-term commitment. There are organizations throughout the community that have projects that don’t require a lot of time. This way you can explore several opportunities and give to a variety of organizations.

Don’t Give Up the Search
It may take some time to find an organization that you click with. Think about things that you are sincerely passionate about—whether that’s feeding the poor, planting trees at local parks or helping a bilingual kid learn how to read. A few failed attempts shouldn’t deter you from trying elsewhere. Keep in mind that there are hundreds of options for you within your community, and there is a great nonprofit that would love to have you as their volunteer. You just have to be willing to find it.
