ERP Therapy: It is nice of you to offer help to your friend. Exposure with response prevention is an empircally validated treatment for ocd: in other words, it works. It is a type of treatment provided by a cognitive behavior therapist or behavior therapist. The association of behavioral and cognitive therapies (abct) www.Abct.Org should be a helpful resource, as they list treatment providers and provide info.
