    • OCD
      Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder characterized by repetitive inner thoughts that cause fear, nervousness, and an array of obsessions and compulsions.
    • Cause
      The causes of OCD are unknown but it is agreed to have to relate to psychological and biological factors
    • Biological Causes
      OCD is believed to be caused by an abnormal level of the neurotransmitter Serotonin
      Serotonin is believed to control anxiety
      This disorder may also be caused by a possible genetic mutation
    • Obsessions
      These are thoughts that continue to linger and/or repeat in one’s head over and over again.
      These thoughts occur no matter how much the sufferer tries to ignore them
    • Compulsions
      These are the repetitive actions that someone with OCD may continue to do no matter how much they resist
      This includes rituals that are formed to either prevent an anxiety-causing event from happening or to remove the event from their thoughts (hand washing, etc.)
    • Treatment
      Behavioral Therapy and other adverse Medications may be used to treat Obsessive-Compulsive disorder
    • Behavioral Therapy
      This therapy involves slowly getting the OCD sufferer to learn to tolerate the anxiety he/she feels by stopping the completion of any repetitive compulsions or rituals
    • Medication
      Medications include SSRI’s which are Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors.
