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?

America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day was on November 15, but it is important to respect the Earth throughout the year. Did you know that over 75 percent of waste is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30 percent? Also, if every American recycled just a tenth of newspapers, we could save 25 million trees each year. Extend kindness to greenify your household this holiday season. Here are a few ways to be environmentally responsible:

Find recycling bins—If you’re ready to start separating trash from recycling, then ask around where you could find recycling bins. In many local communities there are free recycling stations at schools or community centers. For more convenience, pay a small fee for a curbside pickup recycling service.

DIY crafts—There are many household items that could easily be transformed into gifts or decorations. Use wine bottle corks to create a nice door hanger, or use them to create a cork board; transform a t-shirt into a purse. Take the opportunity to DIY and recycle household items.

Donate clothes—Textiles is one of the biggest contributors to landfill waste. Every year, Americans create more than 14.3 million tons of textile waste that could easily be donated. Instead of throwing away a “useless” t-shirt, donate it to a homeless shelter.

Reduce the pantry—Thrown away food contributes to landfills, also. Many households discard good food because it doesn’t interest them or they forget to eat a perishable item. Reduce your pantry by donating canned food and limit your options so to maximize eating all perishables by their “best by” date.
