I know a guy that still currently uses and abuses drugs that goes to Alliant International University in Irvine and he is in the PsyD in Marital and Family Therapy program. He works as a therapist providing therapy to drug addicts at the Jail in Orange County, CA. I?m concerned that he can be harming his already sick clients because he is still using and abusing drugs. He is still using LSD and Mescaline along with other drugs on a weekly to bi-weekly basis at weekend parties and at his home. He is supposed to be a recovered Meth Addict, but I don?t really know for certain. Isn?t it Alliant International University?s responsibility to keep track of dangerous therapists like him? It looks like I?m going to have to write a letter to whomever overseas therapists and psychologists to see if there is anything they can do to stop this person from harming his clients with his unethical drug addicted behaviors. |
I also know another person that applied to Alliant International University and she is also a drug and alcohol recovering addict, and she said that they admitted her to their doctoral programs right away. She applied for 2 of their doctoral programs while Alliant International University accepted her right away (almost instantly) even when they knew about her ?previous drug and alcohol addiction.? My family, co-workers, and friends had a discussion about Alliant and how they are admitting primarily people from drug and alcohol addiction backgrounds, and that are still addicted to their drugs and alcohol, which makes me question how ethical and moral Alliant is. Alliant International University?s practices are apparently unethical and immoral because how can they admit people that say ?they are recovered drug and alcohol addicts? when they aren?t recovered and are still abusing and using drugs and alcohol? I know too much about who and what Alliant International University admits into their programs, and it is appalling to see that they admit alcohol and drug addicts into their program that are still currently using and abusing right behind the Alliant?s back. What is even more devastating is that these therapists are supposed to be ?helping? the drug and alcohol addicts to recover when the therapist is not even recovered himself. This is incredibly unethical, disappointing, and saddening.
It doesn?t surprise me that Alliant International University in Irvine (or in whatever city they?re located) admits students that are currently drug and/or alcohol addicted individuals. Alliant is not a good school. If you?re thinking about applying to graduate schools to be a counselor/therapist/psychologist or for anything then you?d benefit more by applying to a better school. My co-workers, family, and friends, and I have discussed this topic at length and have come to the conclusion that it may be difficult, but study and work harder to get A+ in classes that you think the admissions team will care more about. It is also wise to study and take the GRE because many of the graduate schools still require those scores simply as a formality, but don?t factor them into the admissions decision making process. In other words, your GRE scores don?t matter, yet they are still required in the admission decision making process at many universities.
Basically, attending Alliant International University is not advised! Run away from this ?school?! Run far away! Save yourself their lack of morality and ethics!
