In the United Kingdom, it is believed that almost one million people are living with an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Affecting the lives of men, women and even children, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) usually arise during early adulthood.

Contrary to belief, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) require treatment if they are to be effectively managed. Yet, many individuals overlook treatment.

Sadly, when obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment is overlooked, obsessions escalate beyond control, leaving obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) to reduce an individual’s life quality.

In some instances, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) can be so severe that those suffering cannot live an everyday life.

In other instances, as obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) are classified as mental health disorders, without treatment, many contemplate suicide due to being unable to cope with the ramifications their disorder has on them.

If you are struggling with an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), we highly recommend that you secure obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment as soon as possible.

What Causes Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?

Many factors can contribute to an individual’s likelihood of developing an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). However, many obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) stem from anxiety.

This is because compulsions are learned behaviours that over time become repetitive when an individual is unable to control feelings that cause them to feel anxious.

When considering what causes obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), it should be noted that there are four types of obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD).  The four types of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are outlined below.

 

  • Contamination – people with this type of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) will fear contamination or germs.  As a result, they will clean either themselves, surfaces or objects repeatedly.
  • Perfection – people with this type of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) will crave symmetry and balance.  As a result, they may excessively arrange and count items.
  • Doubt – people with this type of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) will worry for their safety.  As a result, they may repeatedly check that a door is locked, for example.
  • Forbidden/intrusive thoughts – people with this type of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) will have aggressive thoughts.  As a result, they may continuously seek reassurance from others.

How Are Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders (OCD) Treated?

Regardless of the factors that have caused you to develop an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), treatment is available for you to take advantage of.

When considering how obsessive-compulsive disorders are treated, it should be noted that as obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) arise from many different factors, there is no one fit for all when considering obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment.

As a result, personalised treatment programmes are required if an individual is to make a long-term recovery.  This is because the factors that have caused an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) to arise must be managed.

Here at Nova Recovery, our obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment programmes combine a wealth of psychological and well-being therapies.  United, these treatments enable our clients to distinguish the cause of their obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

In doing so, coping strategies can be developed to ensure that the ramifications of the disorder can be mitigated.

What Are The Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Treatment Options At Nova Recovery?

If you find yourself victim to an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and have struggled to regain control of your life, we welcome you to secure obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment at our rehab hospital.

Located in Largs, Scotland, our rehab hospital offers personalised treatment programmes to many individuals.

To ensure that you are aware of your obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment options, we have outlined a number of the treatments you may be offered should you attend our hospital for treatment below.

 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Should you embark on one of our obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment programmes, you will find that cognitive behavioural therapy is incorporated.

Helping more than 75% of people overcome their obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), cognitive behavioural therapy will encourage you to face your fears and learn how to cope with anxiety and stress that could trigger an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Cognitive behavioural therapy will also help you as you determine how you can avoid engaging in compulsive behaviours.

 

Group Therapy

Although you will undergo one-to-one therapy during your time in our residential rehab hospital, you will also be encouraged to participate in group therapy.

While many individuals fear group therapy for different reasons, group therapy is highly beneficial when it comes to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment. This is because group therapy will enable you to review how other individuals cope with the disorder.

You will also find that you can seek a wealth of support and guidance from your peers as you participate in regular group therapy sessions.

 

Medication

Depending on the severity of your obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and the results of your medical evaluation, medication may be incorporated into your obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment programme.

If medication is deemed necessary, our team of medical professionals and recovery support workers will discuss this with you.

Should you require medication, you will likely be prescribed antidepressants. Antidepressants will help improve and alleviate the symptoms you encounter due to your obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

 

Aftercare Support

As you complete your obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment in our rehab hospital, we will continue to support you as you return home and continue your recovery with aftercare support.

The aftercare support included in our obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment programmes consists of one-to-one support via telephone and Zoom, and weekly group therapy sessions.

Although you may not deem aftercare support necessary, if you have completed an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment programme at our rehab hospital, we would encourage you to complete your 12-months of free aftercare support.

Failure to do so could see you once again subject to an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
