Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is used to treat OCD and a psychologist familiar with the treatment of OCD can assist you to develop a suitable exposure hierarchy.
Treatment may consist of consulting a therapist for individual sessions usually once a week for 50 minutes. A course of treatment may be 8-12 sessions or longer.
Some people may choose to combine exposure and response prevention and medication. Approximately 70% of OCD sufferers derive benefit from exposure and response prevention and/or medication for their OCD.
Anti-depressant medication may be prescribed for the treatment of OCD by a general practitioner or psychiatrist. Psychologists do not prescribe medication.
