Narrative of Services:
Our practice North Shore OCD Treatment Center, Ltd. is very proud to be 100% focused on clients with OCD. 100% of sessions focus on decreasing OCD symptoms. Exposure and response prevention is the primary treatment technique used. Other techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy will also be used. With a sole focus, we are confident in our ability to provide the best focused behavioral treatment for OCD. If a client has other co-occurring disorders, those will be treated by a more generalist or other disorder-specific therapist of the client’s choosing.
