Meeting Information:

Meeting day and time: Every other Wednesday evening
Open To: Older adolescents and adults (18 and up) who have completed or are currently engaged in individual ERP
Fee: $70

Description:

The group is consistent with the principles of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and is intended to assist individuals suffering with OCD toward leading freer, more fulfilling lives. It is a complement to individual treatment and is also appropriate for individuals who have successfully completed treatment and are seeking a form of relapse prevention.

The goals of the group include:
-Setting personal goals for growth and recovery
-Removing shame and stigma associated with OCD
-Enhancing motivation to face difficulties associated with treatment
-Fostering community and minimizing isolation

Each group is divided into two parts: discussing an OCD-related theme and setting, reviewing and trouble-shooting individual goals.
