In September 2000 we opened a residential treatment program for OCD at The Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas. In May 2003, the program moved to Houston, Texas and was closed in December 2008. Shortly thereafter in February 2009, the former Menninger OCD Program clinical team formed The Houston OCD Program to provide residential treatment, an intensive outpatient program, outpatient therapy and diagnostic evaluations. A multidisciplinary treatment team is assembled for each patient. A cognitive behavioral therapist, psychiatrist, and mental health counselor compose the foundation of the team.

We offer a full continuum of care from residential treatment to outpatient treatment. Patients can elect to stay in the residential program and access our 7-day per week programming, or they can stay at any of the several hotels in the area and attend the 5-day per week intensive outpatient program. We recently began working on a scholarship program. We are currently accepting donations to our scholarship funds and are outlining procedures to assess the process and criteria through which individuals will have access to this fund.
