Posted on 2013-02-26 10:41:00

OCD is treatable, but because it is hard to treat a select few organizations really understand OCD and how to treat the person instead of their symptoms. There are three main treatment methodologies for OCD medication, psychotherapy or a combination of the two. If you or a loved one have OCD symptoms controlling your daily life, it’s highly recommended you get a screening which may include a full YBOCS test that details the depth and severity of OCD symptoms.

Medication is one method for treating OCD. Commonly anti-depressants are tried to increase the levels of serotonin in the brain. Lacking serotonin is common in patients with OCD diagnosis.
