OCD and Anxiety Adult Residential Care

As part of the comprehensive range of services offered for OCD and anxiety at Rogers, our adult residential center anchors our care for OCD. We offer one of the top residential treatment offerings in the world and one of only a handful specializing in OCD in the country.

Here patients benefit from the expertise of a highly trained and caring staff who partner with residents on a personalized plan of care that addresses each person's unique needs, in a setting which provides the comfort and support needed. With an in-depth, longer-term level of care that averages 45 to 60 days, we work with patients on intensive and challenging treatment for:

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) 
  • OC-spectrum disorders
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Trauma (posttraumatic stress disorder)

Led by an internationally recognized clinical psychologist who oversees cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) at Rogers, we are a team of specialists who are passionate about helping people break free of OCD and related anxiety disorders. Our team provides care that’s proven to work and confirmed by more than a decade of outcomes studies.


Our treatment approach

At Rogers, we base our OCD treatment on a comprehensive, proven effective cognitive behavioral therapy-based approach. Our staff works one-on-one with patients to identify the specific thoughts and situations that create anxiety, and then develop a thorough exposure hierarchy together. Our graduated, manageable treatment approach empowers people to gain control over symptoms and learn effective strategies they can use throughout their life. CBT with an emphasis on exposure and response prevention (ERP) is the foundation of care, in addition to medication management overseen by a board-certified psychiatrist. These skills are gained through both individual and group therapy.

Additional therapeutic support

Other elements within our care may include:

At Rogers, we know it’s hard to change behaviors, and it takes time and effort to replace old thinking patterns and habits with healthier ones. The flexible length of stay allows patients to practice newly acquired skills. We also educate family members on these techniques so they can support a loved one after discharge.

After completing the program, a personal recovery plan for continuing care is created. When appropriate, patients are referred to lower levels of care at Rogers for continued treatment.

A diverse schedule of therapeutic activity helps keep one focused on gaining the skills and understanding to help you cope and manage their OCD and anxiety. The treatment includes structured programming seven days per week. Here’s what a typical weekday looks like:
