The Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Intensive Treatment Program at the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA is for people who have moderate to severe OCD symptoms and a strong commitment to treating their disorder. OCD is a disabling disorder of distressing obsessions and time-consuming compulsions, often resulting in a less than full life. This can be changed however with behavior therapy in the form of Exposure and Response Management. This treatment is based on thestimulus is necessary if anxiety is to diminish.
Maximum length of stay is 30 treatment days (6 weeks). It has been shown that many people with OCD may be effectively treated using a combination of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and medication. This program provides both intensive daily CBT and state-of-the-art medication management.
On admission to the OCD Intensive Treatment Program, each participant is assigned a behavior therapist with whom they will work daily on a one-on-one basis. The first week in the program is spent in going through detailed and specific assessment of the participant's OCD and related problems; this involves questionnaires, interviews and self-monitoring of the OCD. Based on this information, both participant and behavior therapist can establish a personalized program of behavior therapy. An individualized behavior therapy regimen is then incorporated into a highly structured program of education and support. Participants will also take part in therapeutic groups, and also be expected to do assignments on their own. Homework is a significant component of this treatment as participants must learn how to translate their new- found cognitive and behavioral skills to the home situation.
