About

The Canadian Treatment Center for OCD

The Canadian Treatment Centre for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (CTCOCD, www.ctcocd.ca) is the national specialized treatment center for OCD and related disorders throughout the lifespan: children, adolescents, and adults. CTCOCD programs are tailored for persons whose symptoms and related difficulties range from very mild and newly developed to very severe and longstanding. Treatment is offered to Canadians from all provinces and regions and to international residents. Highly specialized CTCOCD services to optimize recovery involve office based sessions for most persons. Intensive treatment programs with a team of experts are available for local and out of town patients who need this service (i.e., prolonged sessions several times weekly or daily). Home visits are offered to help where symptoms occur. Therapist assisted home based specialty treatments may be offered as an effective alternative to hospitalization for very severe symptoms. Strategies for generalization of change, resilience, skills, and self-esteem as well as relapse prevention are integral. Phone or skype sessions are possible for individuals in remote regions who cannot access specialized care. Psychiatric and pharmacological consultation and treatment are available if needed with experienced staff psychiatrists affiliated with the CTCOCD. Treatment is not time-limited and services are bilingual.

Why request specialized help?

Treatment for OCD and related disorders is a specialized field. The psychotherapeutic evidence-based treatment of choice for OCD and related disorders is specialized cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), informed by cutting-edge research and developmentally adapted for each person. At the CTCOCD a specialty treatment plan is developed collaboratively with each person. For mild symptoms this may include only a few sessions and tips you can try at home. For very severe symptoms this may involve an intensive treatment program. Clinical research indicates that individuals suffering from OCD and related disorders should seek specialized treatment as soon as possible following symptom development in order to prevent worsening of symptoms and to speed up return to normal life activities. CTCOCD interventions aim to achieve recovery for as many persons as possible and to strengthen resilience, skills, independence, and self-esteem. Additional strategies are offered to reduce the likelihood of relapse under stress in the future.
