It’s estimated at least 1 in 200 children and teens have OCD, which is characterized by unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that cause high levels of anxiety. Although it can occur at any age, OCD tends to first appear between the ages of 8 and 12 and the late teen years and early adulthood.
Psychiatrists lead a multidisciplinary team committed to helping kids gain control of their symptoms so they can develop effective lifelong coping skills.
“Kids and families who come in are losing everything,” says Peter Lake, MD, medical director, psychiatrist, OCD and Anxiety Center, child and adolescent care. “Their academics, friendships social life, and the family life is affected. To be able to put all the pieces together in the right way at the right time to give a child and their family their life back, it doesn’t get any better than that.”
