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?

Green Cleaning Tips

We commonly clean our home to get rid of toxins, pollutants and to keep us healthy, but what if those products we use to clean are actually doing more harm than good? 17,000 petrochemicals (chemical products derived from petroleum) are available for home use, but only 30 percent of them have been tested for exposure to human health. Synthetic chemicals account for many of the products in our lives and can eventually lead to cancer through exposure. Take precaution and protect yourself and your family with these three tips:

Use the right products—Take a look at the cleaning products you use now. Do they have peroxide in them? Do they say “100 percent organic” or “EPA-approved” on the label? If not, then it may be time to toss them. Look for green cleaning products at your local superstore with the correct labels. Carefully throw away your old cleaners at chemical recycling sites in your community.

Check your air quality—Keep your family out of harm’s way with good indoor air quality. Most times, the air inside a home or office is at a higher risk for toxins than the air outside. Improve your home air quality by keeping the windows open as much as possible, especially when cleaning or painting the inside of the house.

Clean up germs—We usually jump to antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaners for messes, but it’s more important to use the right products in the right way. Antibacterial products aren’t more effective than regular soap and warm water, and they actually increase the risk of super germs that survive chemical cleaners.
