Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a form of anxiety most commonly characterized by a subject’s obsessive, distressing, intrusive thoughts and related compulsions (tasks or “rituals”) which attempt to neutralize the obsessions. People with OCD recognize that their thoughts are irrational, but can’t stop them. Fortunately, very effective treatments for OCD are now available to help you regain a more satisfying life.
The Obsessive Compulsive Foundation recommends finding a psychotherapist who is oriented toward behavioral or cognitive behavioral therapy. Ideally – one experienced in the practice of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). OCD is not a simple condition and an effective treatment to OCD for even a mild case requires multiple visits with especially trained therapist.
OCD treatment has two main components: psychotherapy and medications. spiral2grow of New York City provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that has been shown to be the most effective form of therapy for OCD. Cognitive behavior counseling involves retraining your thought patterns and routines so that compulsive behaviors are no longer necessary.
