OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder. A person with these struggles has recurring obsessions and compulsions that take up a considerable amount of time, cause distress, and impair normal functioning. Obsessions are repeated thoughts about contamination, doubts, need to have things in order, or sexual imagery. Compulsions are mental acts or repeated behaviors. Compulsions are often used to prevent the stress or anxiety brought on by the obsession. During the course of the disorder, the person realizes that his/her obsessions and compulsions are excessive and more unreasonable than general worry or anxiety. Exposure therapy and cognitive therapies can be combined to create a very effective treatment for those struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
