The Youth Anxiety Center (YAC) at the Weill Cornell Psychiatry Specialty Center offers an Intensive Treatment Program (ITP) for OCD and Anxiety, which provides a comprehensive intensive treatment experience consisting of up to five hours a week of active treatment, including group and individual therapy. We additionally have an intensive program for children and adolescents, which is listed separately. The ITP addresses OCD as well as other non-OCD anxiety disorders, such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Selective Mutism, and specific phobias. It is appropriate for young adults with moderately to severely impairing symptoms and can address symptoms that interfere with the transition to college, work, or a more independent lifestyle. The goal of the program is to provide short-term intensive treatment to target symptoms using Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) treatment strategies. Our program provides evaluation, psychoeducation, group therapy, individual sessions and parent sessions led by licensed psychologists. Additionally, a board-certified psychiatrist with expertise in this area is available for consultations and medication changes as needed.
