Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Intensive Treatment Program

OCD is a disabling disorder of distressing obsessions and time-consuming compulsions, often resulting in a less than full life.

This treatment is based on the fact that prolonged, direct contact with a fearful stimulus is necessary if anxiety is to diminish.
