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?

How to Live a Positive Life

Our calendars are constantly full and while we’re reminding ourselves that we can’t get it all done, we desperately try to. We hurry to cross things off our to-do list and yet it keeps growing. Don’t let the everyday errands and work bog you down so much that you forget to enjoy life. Living a positive life reduces stress, reduces physical signs of stress and increases general happiness. Here are three ways to live a positive life:

Smile more—With our agendas full and a to-do list that never ends, it’s hard to remember to stop, smile and appreciate life. People like other people who smile. Smiling more helps you think more positively about life and also cheers up another person's day.

Think positively—Smiling helps trick your brain into thinking positively, but it’s hard to train your brain to think positively all the time. Every night before falling asleep, keep a journal of ten things you are grateful for. It could be a delicious meal or that you got a raise that day. Just remember to take time to appreciate life!

Be thoughtful—Create more positivity in your life by having genuine conversations. Ask people how their life is going and truly care. Remember specific conversation topics: that their mom might be in the hospital or their niece just graduated college. Follow up and show them that they matter.
