What is OCD treatment?
OCD is where you have a fear or worry that is hard to get rid of and very uncomfortable. To get rid of it you do something specific to reduce or neutralize this fear, at least for a moment. Over time, this behavior gets you stuck in a cycle that feels impossible to get out of. ERP helps you to get unstuck and change this cycle. ERP is the gold standard for treatment of OCD. OCD looks different in different people and can include behaviors such as checking, counting, washing, ordering and arranging, doubting, confessing, and more). ERP provides a road map to help you face your fears while reducing compulsive behaviors.
