Obsessive-Compulsive and Anxiety Disorders

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder of both the brain and behavior. People with OCD experience intrusive thoughts referred to as obsessions, which trigger high levels of anxiety. They then respond with repetitive acts, known as compulsions, to try to lower the anxiety and escape the obsessions. To be considered OCD, the obsessions and compulsions must be both time-consuming and interfere with day-to-day activities. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD affects between two and three million adults in the United States.

Butler Hospital’s OCD experts provide treatment in a variety of settings, including in the hospital or partial hospital, outpatient, and neurosurgery. Butler also has a team of researchers who focus on studies of OCD treatments.
