Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (compulsions) that cause significant distress and interfere with daily life. Understanding the causes, symptoms, and available treatment options for OCD is essential for those affected by the condition.
OCD can be caused by various factors, including genetic predisposition, environmental influences, and personal experiences. Common symptoms include persistent, unwanted thoughts, repetitive behaviors, and significant anxiety or distress.
Treatment for OCD often involves cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), specifically a technique called exposure and response prevention (ERP). This therapeutic approach helps individuals confront their fears and resist the urge to engage in compulsive behaviors. In some cases, medication, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), may be prescribed to help manage OCD symptoms.
