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.   https://governor.kansas.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/EO20-16.pdf

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.

Ways to Celebrate World Kindness Day

Sure, most people would consider themselves a generally kind person. And let’s face it, being kind to others at least once a day would make the world a better place. So with World Kindness Day on November 13, you can use the passing of the event as a reminder to make a difference in someone’s day by simply being kind.

Show Your Praise
We all have times where we don’t feel like the work we do is appreciated. Many do great work that goes unnoticed. So go out of your way to let someone know that you appreciate a few coworkers’ efforts. You can mention it in passing or go so far as send them a personal note. Remember, your coworker doesn’t have to do something momentous to be thanked.

Kill Them with Kindness
So you may be thinking, what about that boss who you swear pushes your buttons on purpose, or your mother-in-law who always puts you down? It’s time to put the petty aside, and change your attitude—even if only for a day. Focus on the good things in your relationship with that person, and give them all the kindness you give to others. Besides, they might even decide to follow your lead and it could wind up improving your relationship.

Do Something About It
Sometimes doing speaks louder than, well, speaking. Think of ways that you can act on your thoughts of kindness. Sometimes the best gifts are unexpected, and can be given just because you appreciate someone. Whether it’s a card showing you care, a plate of cookies you baked or flowers to brighten someone’s day, the littlest thoughts count. You can also show your kindness by giving back to the community. Spend a few hours of your Saturday volunteering near your home.
