"You might think that quitting the drink for just 31 days is unlikely to have a big impact on health, but many participants who take part in Dry January report better sleep, increased energy, and weight loss."

I am thoroughly enjoying my education with ACHS. Instructors are knowledgeable and always available for questions. Student Service team is phenomenal and goes out of their way to ensure I have the aid I need. Classes require students to self-monitor their time, but I'm really enjoying the flexibility of taking classes online. I am looking forward to furthering my education with this school. Natalie

9/28/2009 I found out about this distance learning program when I was surfing the web. Though I had lived in PDX for a few years and heard about the Naturopathic School and the TCM school and am very involved in alternative medicine, I had never heard about ACHS. I was interested in it as it seemed to have some alternative funding to make it possible for me to attend and add to my credentials. Weeks ago I called to find out about funding to attend their school. The first red flag was that my message failed to be relayed to the right person over the course of a couple weeks. I initially spoke with the registrar who I recall, in my opinion, failed to convey a good feeling. A couple weeks later, the relevant person called and left a message when I was out of town. I had asked that the information I requested be left on my answering machine. Today I called back and spoke with a woman who sounded perky, impersonal and crisp which was my second red flag. I felt like I was calling a temp agency rather than a healing arts school. When I find I am dealing with a one dimensional business person it has been my experience such people with little life experience and superficial relationship skills are put in positions of power and responsibility can be problematic as you can see it was. I repeated to her that I was looking for information about funding to attend. What follows is the third red flag: I had to go through what felt to be an interrogation before she would relent and provide the information I had been waiting for these past weeks. She asked how I was employed, what exact program did I want to attend, exactly when I planned to attend and more. I was just trying so see if attending was a remote possibility and instead I felt invaded and pressured. Do all schools do this nowadays? When I was unable to answer her question I repeated again that I was calling to find out information about funding for tuition which she finally shared. Being that I have had these two unpleasant experiences with their administrative folks and there fails to be any student reviews here on Yelp (what... not one of their past or present distance learning students are on Yelp or would be willing to do a review?), I really have some reservations.

Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Thank you for your feedback. Hearing from students helps us to improve the services we offer. We're sorry to hear you had a negative experience and apologize for the initial delay; we have since implemented a new process for handling messages! We've worked with many students pursuing vocational rehabilitation funding and are sorry you felt "grilled"; that was not our intent. We strive to get as much info to best assist students. Background questions are determining factors in eligibility. Hopefully, we can continue to work together. Warm regards, Dorene Petersen, President Originally posted in March 2012
