Often misunderstood and misdiagnosed, most Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders are now known to be genetically influenced disorders aggravated by immune, hormonal and life stress events. With an estimated 52 to 79 million persons in the US alone struggling with an obsessive compulsive disorder the World Health Organization has listed OCD as among the top 10 causes of disability worldwide. While research into these fascinating mind/body disorders has made great advances, treatment innovations have lagged far behind.
Many OC patients go undiagnosed. Even those patients fortunate enough to receive attention find there are few practitioners with the expertise to provide high quality treatment or understand the subtle effects the disorder has on the individual's lifestyle, learning abilities, relationships, career choices and even spirituality. Medications provide complete relief for less than 15% of patients so the need for new behavioral, cognitive and lifestyle innovations is great.
The OCD Recovery Center was formed around the mission of making creative, research-derived treatment options available to OC sufferers and reducing the current 17 year lag between symptom onset and effective treatment.
