Day, Partial, and Residential Programs

What Type of Treatment Is Provided?

Most of these programs are multi-modal—combining careful physical, neurological, psychological, and social assessments with medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy, education about OCD, social skills deficits, interventions aimed at control issues, and family issues.

When Should These Types of Programs Be Considered?

  • • In the case of people who cannot comply with treatment— either because they are non-compliant with medications or because they cannot or will not undertake exposures on their own
  • • Those who have markedly impaired self-care or poor oral intake/dietary status
  • • Those whose OCD results in extreme or intolerable disruption to the home environment and family life

• The individual with co-occurring eating disorder, Substance Use Disorder, or severe mood disorder
