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.   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.

Cinco Reasons Why You Should Be Volunteering

There are countless reasons why you should volunteer, but it seems like there’s an equal number of excuses not to. Between work, family and other daily obligations, it’s a challenge to find extra time to give away.

But ultimately, the benefits of volunteering greatly outweigh any time constraints you might have. The biggest reason, of course, is that it gives you the opportunity to help others in need. But in honor of the 5/5 holiday, Cinco de Mayo, here are 5 other reasons why you should start donating your time:

1. It can be tied to something that you’re passionate about. Whether you’ve lost a family member to cancer or feel strongly about providing shelter and medical care to abused pets, you’ll be able to find an organization with a cause that’s close to your heart.

2. It helps build your resume. Several employers and schools look favorably upon people who have spent time volunteering. It’s also a great way to fill in time gaps when you’re in between jobs.

3. It allows you to learn new things. Have you always wanted to give graphic design a try, but never had the opportunity? Volunteering is a great way to explore new skills and test out your knack for things outside of your job.

4. It reduces stress. Focusing on others instead of yourself has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and make you happier. And who doesn’t want that?

5. It’s fun! You’ll get to meet great new people while doing meaningful things. Volunteering is a blast.
