Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Its a mental health condition where a person has obsessive thoughts and compulsive activity

What is OCD?

OCD, or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, is a common disorder with a lifetime prevalence of 2-3% in the general population. OCD specialist in Mumbai and other cities states that it occurs in children, adolescents and adults, and both men and women are equally likely to get it. It is a chronic disorder characterized by obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are thoughts, images, or impulses that occur over and over again and are beyond one’s control. Moreover, these thoughts and images can be disturbing, repulsive, silly or senseless. In response to these obsessions, many sufferers develop compulsions, i.e. repetitive behaviors or thoughts that neutralize or make the obsessions go away. Compulsions cannot totally relieve the obsessions long-term and hence the repetitive nature of compulsions makes them time-consuming. Jagruti Rehab Centre provides OCD specialist in Mumbai and best OCD treatment in Pune. Related problems- Some people with OCD may also have or develop other serious mental health problems, including:

  • Depression – a condition that typically causes lasting feelings of sadness and hopelessness, or a loss of interest in the things you used to enjoy

  • Eating disorders – conditions characterized by an abnormal attitude towards food that cause you to change your eating habits and behavior

  • Generalised anxiety disorder – a condition that causes you to feel anxious about a wide range of situations and issues, rather than one specific event

If the results of the initial screening questions suggest you have OCD, the severity of your symptoms will be assessed either by your psychiatrist or a mental health professional. There are several different methods of assessment. All involve asking detailed questions to find out how much of your day-to-day life is affected by obsessive-compulsive thoughts and behavior. During the assessment, it is important you are open and honest, as accurate and truthful responses will ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment. Treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) depends on the how much the condition is affecting your daily life. The two main treatments are:
• Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) involving graded exposure and response prevention (ERP) – therapy that encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without "putting them right" or "neutralizing" them with compulsions
• Medication – To control your symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in your brain

NOTE: People with mild to moderate OCD usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises done at home between sessions. Best OCD treatment in Pune and Mumbai is assured by providing therapy and medication at its best.
