Who Needs Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is one of the most misunderstood and potentially debilitating mental illnesses in the world. Individuals who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder may find that many aspects of their illness keep them from living a truly healthy and fulfilling life.
The following information, compiled by experts at top mental health treatment centers around the country is designed to help families identify whether or not their loved one is a candidate for obsessive compulsive disorder therapy.

Signs and Symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • An irrational fear of dirt or contamination
  • A need to have things placed in an orderly or symmetrical fashion at all times
  • Experiencing horrific images or having highly negative, destructive impulses
  • Unusual sexual thoughts or images
  • Persistent doubts about having turned off the stove or locking the door after leaving the house

Who Should Seek Professional OCD Treatment?

Many times, people mistake OCD for perfectionism. They see no harm in the behavior of their friends and loved ones - after all, they just seem to like things clean and orderly, so what's the harm? But what may seem harmless can actually be a strong case of OCD.

Individuals who have an obsessive compulsive disorder will engage in the cleaning and organizational behavior listed above so much that it takes them away from their family - or keeps them from succeeding at work or school.

Simply put, when OCD begins to rule the life of the individual with the disorder it is time to seek professional help for the condition.

What Happens During OCD Treatment?

The object of OCD treatment is to help the individual develop coping strategies to more effectively deal with their OCD symptoms. This includes indentifying triggers for the OCD-related behaviors and finding more positive ways to respond to them. There is a lot of one-on-one counseling that takes place during treatment, as patient and therapist will be digging deep into the individual's background in order to uncover the root causes of the problem.
