Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Worries, doubts and superstitious beliefs are all common in everyday life. But, when they become so excessive that they begin to interfere with normal daily functioning, an evaluation of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) may be in order.
Fewer than 10% of people with OCD are being treated, even though OCD is treatable when properly diagnosed. On average, people with OCD see three to four doctors and spend over nine years seeking treatment before they receive a correct diagnosis, all the while struggling with their symptoms and behaviors.
