Houston OCD Program is a self-pay treatment program. We do not accept payment from third party providers (e.g. insurance or loan companies). Families can contract with SJ Health Insurance Advocates, who can assist families, for a fee, in receiving some reimbursement from their insurance companies. SJ Health Insurance Advocates will verify benefits, request authorization for services, and bill the insurance company so that families may receive reimbursement from their insurance company. The amount of reimbursement varies based upon what services are authorized, as well as an individual’s specific plan and policy. We cannot guarantee reimbursement, but SJ Health Insurance Advocates will assist you in accessing what reimbursement is available. Please contact us at should you have any additional questions regarding the insurance reimbursement process.

If you are arriving for admission to the program, or for your outpatient session with your therapist, please do not go to the house (706 E 19th) go to the office behind the house (708 E 19th).
I was with the team when they were at Menninger and when they closed their doors. I’ve had OCD for the last 12 years of my life and before I went into treatment it had literally taken over every aspect of my life. Every move I made was consumed by OCD. The monster made me suffer with rechecking, reassurance seeking, confessions, contamination fears, sexual obsessions, hit and run fears and pretty much everything but hoarding and scrupulosity. It was extremely hard work, but I can now say I have a life back, when before I wasn’t even sure if I’d be living. They taught me the tools to live my life and keep my OCD manageable. The staff was truly amazing and literally saved my life. Although they will say that it was me who did the hard work, without their caring and kind hearts I would never have been able to do it.
