The Houston OCD Program delivers individualized evidence-based treatment for individuals struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders, phobias, and depression. We specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), particularly Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP) and other effective treatment techniques for anxiety and anxiety-related disorders. The treatment team also utilizes other innovative treatment interventions, such as mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), to provide the most effective treatment for the individual.

The full continuum of care offered at the Houston OCD Program includes a Residential Support Program, Intensive Outpatient Program and outpatient services through our Outpatient Clinic. Our Residential Support and Intensive Outpatient Programs are designed for adult clients who are either unable to access outpatient treatment or are not benefiting from their current outpatient treatment. In addition, we offer an individually focused Intensive Outpatient Program for children and adolescents. The Outpatient Clinic at the Houston OCD Program provides diagnostic and treatment consultations, and evidence-based individual CBT for children, adolescents, and adults.

We work with our clients to provide a compassionate therapeutic environment while implementing evidence-based treatment techniques. Part of the Houston OCD Program’s mission is to advance treatment outcome research in the field of anxiety disorders. Presently, these findings show that our clients, in general, benefit greatly from receiving treatment in our treatment programs that are designed to fit their individual needs.
