OCD New Jersey (OCDNJ) is a nonprofit organization sanctioned by the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). We are committed to the IOCDF goals of:

  • educating the community about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD),
  • offering support to sufferers and their families, and
  • supporting research.
  • Members include mental health professionals as well as OCD sufferers, their families, and friends. OCDNJ has a Board of Directors and a Scientific Advisory Board.


    OCD New Jersey had a very successful quarterly presentation in December with our first “Ask the Experts” panel in many years. The panel, consisting of Drs. Allen Weg, Marla Deibler, and Rachel Strohl took questions from the audience as Dr. Diana Antinoro moderated. Because of the great turnout, we expect to run similar programs again in the near future.

    Our next quarterly presenter will be Jeff Cohn of “Address Our Mess,” a cleanup company that works in tandem with mental health professionals in cleaning out homes of hoarders. The presentation, open to mental health professionals and lay people, is free of charge and is scheduled for Monday night, March 7, at 730. See www.OCDNJ.org for details.

    Our next annual conference will feature as our keynote speaker, Dr. John Piacentini, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the UCLA Child OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders Program. He presentation is entitled, “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy of OCD: How Science is Making Effective Treatment Even Better.” This luncheon/conference will take place in Garwood, New Jersey, on unday, March 13th.
