Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) was once thought to be an untreatable condition. However, in the past 30 years psychiatric and psychological treatment advances now allow individuals with OCD to manage and overcome their symptoms and live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Untreated OCD is a potentially disabling condition that strikes children and adults. Estimates of up to three percent of the population will battle OCD at some point in their lives and it affects men and women in equal numbers. It delivers a staggering toll for the individual and society, as individuals with OCD to have much higher than expected rates of under-employment and unemployment. With treatment , a person suffering OCD can now expect to free themselves from OCD’s grip. Dr. Charles Brady, from Lindner Center of HOPE’s OCD and Anxiety treatment program will discuss the nature of OCD including how it is diagnosed and how current evidence based treatments are able to help individuals reclaim their lives.
