Exponents is an addiction treatment center involved to provide a quality life for the individuals addicted to a substance, mental illness, and AIDS.
Exponents was established in 1980 as a treatment center for substance abuse and designed a treatment program named, “harm reduction”, to recover individuals addicted to drugs. Today, it helps people with all forms of dependency – from complex polydrug addictions like the ever-popular celebrity choice, alcohol + Xanax to prescription drugs and illegal drugs, including the latest synthetics.
The program was successful and its reputation has begun to grow since then.
