OCD Treatment Near Me, Laguna Niguel CA

Although there are numerous therapists to choose from, finding the one who can adequately diagnose and efficiently treat OCD can pose a problem for many patients and families.

Our experienced team can recommend the ideal therapy or treatment procedure for your obsessive-compulsive disorder.

What Is OCD Treatment 

OCD, which stands for obsessive-compulsive disorder, is a cognitive behavioural therapy involving psychological therapy or medications. In some cases, it involves both. Some benefits of OCD treatment include:

  • It helps patients to confront their obsessions 
  • With time, the patient’s anxiety improves or goes away
  • It encourages patients to face their fears

Procedure For OCD Treatment 

Psychological therapy and medications are among the treatment options we recommend for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Psychological Therapy

At our practice, we use therapy for cases of moderate OCD. Our therapist breaks down your issues into different parts in this procedure, such as physical feelings, actions, and thoughts. They then encourage you to confront your fears and have obsessive thoughts without subduing them with compulsive behaviours; we start with scenarios that cause less anxiety before proceeding to complex thoughts. This treatment is challenging and may sound daunting, but several people find that their obsessions and anxiety get better or leave entirely.

Medication 

In cases where psychological therapy does not help the patient’s OCD, or if the patient’s OCD is quite severe, our specialists try medications. The primary medicines are an antidepressant called selective reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). This medicine can help improve symptoms of OCD by increasing the level of serotonin in the patient’s brain. 

Our specialist advises that the patient take this medication for at least 12 weeks before you will notice any benefit. Most patients continue the treatment for at least a year, but they can stop if they have few or no symptoms. In some cases, patients need to take medications for several years.
