Getting help for OCD
A comprehensive treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder typically involves medication, psychotherapy or a combination of the two. Although most patients respond to treatment, some continue to experience its symptoms. The sooner one starts seeking treatment, the better it is for managing the symptoms.
Medications including Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SRIs) and Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are used to reduce OCD symptoms. Medication may be prescribed if one experiences severe anxiety or suffers from a co-morbid condition along with OCD. In addition to FDA-approved medications, behavioral therapies for OCD are aimed at exposing patients to feared situations and thoughts in order to prevent compulsive disorders (both mental and physical). Known to be an effective treatment for OCD, psychotherapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and other therapies like exposure and response prevention (ERP) or exposure therapy are effective in reducing OCD symptoms.
OCD symptoms can be recurring and can virtually ease over time, but those with OCD may try to help themselves by avoiding trigger situations and may use alcohol or drugs to calm their minds. Therefore, treatment for OCD should address not only OCD symptoms but also the presence of any comorbid disorders, such as substance use disorder.
