Effective Drug-Free Treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be very disruptive to one's daily life. The impact upon one's job, relationships and family can range from mild to severe.

I often see children as well as adults who are struggling with the symptoms of this disorder.
While medication is frequently prescribed and can be helpful, by itself it will not provide long term, lasting relief from symptoms.
My own approach to treatment depends upon how severe are the symptoms and how much they are interfering with an individual's functioning. For the more severe, a combination of medication and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) are the way to go, with the eventual goal of coming off medication.
For those who are not as severe, CBT and SFT alone are highly effective.
