The UPMC Western Behavioral Health Pediatric OCD Program began as a specialty outpatient clinic in 2004 with the IOP opening its doors in 2005. In 2015, IOP services were expanded to offer both a morning and afternoon/evening IOP to meet the expressed needs of children/adolescents and families in the community. The Pediatric OCD Program is staffed by highly trained licensed therapists all of whom deliver ERP in both the outpatient and IOP levels of care. There are two psychiatrists and a psychiatric nurse that provide medication management services associated with the Pediatric OCD Program. The Pediatric OCD Program also utilizes interns from graduate, doctoral, and post-graduate programs in social work, counseling, and psychology as well as psychiatry residents and child/adolescent psychiatry fellows as WPIC is a teaching hospital.
