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?

3 Ways to Show Your Support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s almost half way through Breast Cancer Awareness Month—have you found a way to volunteer and show your support?

2.8 million women are currently in treatment or have finished treatment in the United States alone, so to say that this is an important cause to recognize is a bit of an understatement.

1. Make a pledge to eat healthier.
This is quite simple. Studies show that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (and regular exercise) significantly lowers your risk of getting cancer (and remember, men can get breast cancer as well). Considering that October is World Vegetarian Month, we think now is an opportune time to try out some new great recipes showcasing some tasty fall produce. (Remember, fresh is always the better option, as it’s loaded with more nutrients.)

2. Donate to the National Breast Cancer Foundation
Helping over 350,000 breast cancer survivors and patients, the NBCF offers programs such as early detection plans, breast health awareness education, mammograms for women who can’t afford them and much more.

If you are unable to donate monetarily, consider supporting one of their many programs such as their Virtual Volunteer Program which spreads the message of early detection via social media platforms, plan and host a fundraising event, or find one of the many NBCF events hosted around the nation to support the cause.

3. Buy something pink!
Many local businesses and nonprofits offer limited-time editions of their products in a fabulous shade of pink (with partial profits donated to a breast cancer related nonprofit).

Peruse your local businesses (and restaurants) for pink related merchandise and show your support while sporting a dashing new accessory or outfit. (And men, remember: women love a man who can rock a pink shirt.)
