What Treatments Are Available for a Person Suffering from OCD?

Treatment options for OCD include:

  • Medications: Psychiatric medications focus on receptor deficits and target serotonin. These medications may include anti-depressants.
  • Psychotherapy: Behavioral and cognitive therapy which focuses on modifying behaviors. This type of therapy includes exposing the individual to situations which create the obsessions and refocusing the response to the stimuli. This therapy also may focus on the individual’s thoughts and changing the thoughts, rather than behaviors.
  • Surgery: This type of treatment focuses on interrupting the pathway in the brain responsible for OCD or emitting gamma radiation beams into the brain area involved with OCD.


A professional psychologist can provide more direction regarding what treatment option may be best for you or your loved one. If you are suffering, seek treatment today.
