Treatment Of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is often misdiagnosed by medical professionals as depression, anxiety or even bipolar disorder. When it is recognized for what it is, the most effective treatment is EPR, or exposure and response therapy, which is similar to CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy).

ERP therapy exposes the patient to situations and thoughts that cause anxiety while controlling the urge to perform the compulsive action. It is effective in about 66% of people and is often clubbed with certain medication.
