What is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder?
OCD is a mental health condition characterized by recurring unwanted thoughts, images, or urges (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions). These obsessions and compulsions can significantly interfere with daily activities, relationships, and overall quality of life.
Here are explanations of obsessions and compulsions:
- Obsessions: These are intrusive and persistent thoughts, images, or urges that cause anxiety and distress. Common obsessions include fears of contamination, harming others, or being responsible for a terrible event. These thoughts are often irrational and go against the person's true nature, causing them significant discomfort.
- Compulsions: In response to obsessive thoughts, individuals with OCD engage in repetitive behaviors or mental acts aimed at reducing the anxiety caused by their obsessions. Compulsions are typically temporary relief, and the cycle often repeats. Examples of compulsions include excessive handwashing, counting, checking locks, organizing items, or repeating specific phrases.
We offer a comprehensive approach to OCD treatment tailored to your unique needs. Our experienced team of therapists and psychiatrists will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that may include:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is a highly effective treatment for OCD. Our therapists will help you identify and challenge irrational thoughts and develop healthier coping mechanisms to manage your obsessions and compulsions.
- Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP): ERP is a specific form of CBT that involves gradually exposing yourself to situations that trigger your obsessions and resisting the urge to perform compulsive behaviors. This process helps reduce anxiety and teaches you healthier ways to respond to your obsessions.
- Medication Management: In some cases, medication can be beneficial in reducing OCD symptoms. Our psychiatrists are experienced in prescribing and monitoring appropriate medications to support your treatment.
