The Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center established the first OCD GOALS group in the country and has been sponsoring this free support group for over 20 years. The group is designed specifically for individuals with OCD and OCD spectrum disorders, including compulsive hoarding. One of AATC’s therapists facilitates each group. The meeting typically begins with group discussion of a question or topic suggested by the therapist. The focus then switches to discussions focusing on individualized goal planning, progress toward these goals, and troubleshooting when a member is experiencing difficulty progressing on goals. The group atmosphere is informal, supportive, and nonjudgmental. Members are not required to disclose information and may choose not to speak.

The OCD Support Group meets virtually every other Monday evening from 7:00-8:30 pm. We do not meet on major holidays. Individuals who are interested in joining this group are asked to call 610-667-6490 x. 13 for a brief phone screening. There may be a waitlist for new members.
We also facilitate a free support group for adults with panic and anxiety every other Monday 7-8:30. Please feel free to reach out for more information.
