The OCD cycle

The OCD Cycle displays how the experience of OCD develops and continues. It begins with an obsession (recurring and unwanted thoughts, feelings, urges, or sensations), creating high levels of distress. As a natural response, the individual will seek to rid the distress through a mental or physical act, known as a compulsion. Compulsions often feel helpful in the moment; however, the relief is only temporary. The cycle continues, feeling like an endless rollercoaster.

Exposure and Response Prevention is utilized to discontinue the OCD Cycle. Go to “Our Services Page” to learn more.
