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.

United Nations International Day of Happiness

The United Nations focuses strongly on “the pursuit of happiness” as “a fundamental human goal.” The International Day of Happiness was first recognized in 2012 and increases public awareness about happiness and life aspirations as a part of international public policy. Social isolation has become an epidemic, seemingly “twice as deadly as obesity,” according to the United Nations. Here are three ways to celebrate and spread a little happiness in your community:

Join Happiness Actions—In major cities, happiness gatherings are organized to share positive, optimistic thoughts and increase community connection. Activists wear bright “happy” colors and hold signs that say, “You are loved!” and “You are awesome!”

Share Online Positivity—Online relationships are equally crucial to a person’s well-being as in-person relationships. Low web-esteem, a term that defines one’s self-esteem as determined by the internet, can even increase depression and negative thoughts. Share a fun photo, *cyber-hug* someone or like someone’s posts to share positivity.

High-Fives and Random Hugs—There are many groups around the world that organize outside of International Day of Happiness, but have a similar goal: to increase human connection. Get some friends together to share hugs and high-fives. This may sound ridiculous, but it spreads so much positivity and smiles, that a little silliness is worth it.
