This is a space for information on/for the Special Interest Group (SIG) for OCD/SUD community.  This includes those with OCD/SUD, those who provide treatment, researchers, and those who are in their lives – family and friends. We share resources, work to increase awareness, and advocate for concurrent treatment. Most of all we want those with OCD & SUD to know you are not alone and recovery is possible.
