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?

Read All About It: Why You Should Support Your Local Library

When was the last time you used your library card? In a world where free ebooks are readily available and you can use Google to find information on basically anything, a local library can seem somewhat obsolete. But what’s often forgotten is that libraries offer so much more than books on a shelf.

These are just a few of the reasons why libraries play a vital role in communities:

- They are cultural hubs. Libraries offer a public space in which community members can gather to interact and exchange ideas.

- They help lower the unemployment rate. Most libraries offer free high-speed internet access, allowing patrons to conduct job searches. Many also provide assistance with resume writing, interviewing and even acquiring basic computer skills.

- They serve as the “people’s university.” Whether someone never had the opportunity for higher education or they simply want to expand their knowledge base, libraries offer textbooks and other resources that can often only be found at other universities.

- They serve as a link between government and citizens. Most libraries help people to understand and use government websites, complete E-government forms and apply for E-government services.

- They are important sources for youth development. Children’s reading groups, tutoring services and other important programs promote quality childhood education.

So how can you help?

- Make a donation. For every $1,000 donated, libraries can receive 179 library visits, circulate 2680 free materials, train 12 patrons through a library program and issue library cards and provide services for 20 new library patrons.

- Volunteer. In most public libraries, anyone over the age of 14 can volunteer. There’s a myriad of activities you can participate in, including everything from reading to young children to staffing bookmobiles.
