OCD Options: meds are important for the treatment of OCD. It might be beneficial to see a psychiatrist expert in the treatment of anxiety disorders. More importantly, treatment of OCD (if that is the correct diagnosis) responds well to Exposure/Response Prevention procedures. Check with your local psychological association for names of licensed psychologists trained in the use of these methods.
