Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder driven by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions).
Typically OCD begins in childhood and tends to run in families. When extreme cases of OCD become severe and time-consuming, they can significantly distress or disrupt a person’s life.
Belmont utilizes the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, to diagnosis your symptoms as obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Common symptoms of OCD include:
The anxiety caused by these undesired obsessions can result in a patient seeking relief by conducting rituals (compulsions).
Common compulsions include:
Although many people with OCD recognize their fears are irrational, they cannot overcome their obsessions and compulsions on their own. Belmont Behavioral Health’s multidisciplinary staff will examine the patient to formulate an individual treatment plan.
Addictions or Substance Abuse treatment is available for patients who suffer from both obsessive compulsive disorder and substance abuse.
Medication. Therapies and rehabilitative services are very helpful for patients with OCD. At times antidepressant medications may be used as OCD treatment.
Support. Belmont works to create a support system for its patients, who benefit greatly from family members who understand the disease and support the patient in the hospital and aftercare.
