Compass Health Center offers Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient programming for individuals 18+ with OCD and other complex anxiety disorders. We offer both on-site and virtual group-based programming rooted in daily Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP) with a strong focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), in addition to skill building in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We encourage our participants to practice working through anxiety in pursuit of their personal values. In doing so, we highlight the possibility of living a fulfilling life despite the presence of uncertainty or discomfort.

Level of care and length of treatment are determined primarily by the severity of the individual’s symptoms and evaluated regularly throughout programming by the individual’s treatment team. The adults in our programs work collaboratively with individual and group therapists, psychiatric providers, and family therapists to develop comprehensive treatment plans catered to their personalized goals. We also provide substance use support and academic/career coaching when appropriate.

Through evidence-based practices, wrap-around services, and individualized treatment, Compass Health Center’s OCD & Complex Anxiety Program provides quality care for its clients. Our specialized programming helps those struggling with OCD, panic disorder, social anxiety, illness anxiety, trichotillomania/excoriation, and other complex anxiety disorders a return to meaningful living.

Compass Health Center treated individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, moderate substance use issues, and trauma. We have specialty programs and therapists to meet the needs of these patients. Each pt’s treatment team will put together a treatment plan that works best for the individual. Some patients will transfer to different programs before or after the OCD and Complex Anxiety program, attend specialty groups in other programs, or meet individually with a specialist. This is all based on each person’s treatment needs.
