Learn About Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treatment

Discover treatment for co-occurring obsessive-compulsive disorder at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

Obsessive-compulsive disorder, also known as OCD, is a mental health condition that causes individuals to experience intrusive thoughts, called obsessions, and display repetitive behaviors, called compulsions. While the content and focus of these obsessions and compulsions may vary between individuals, both are intrusive and persistent.

Individuals who are suffering from co-occurring OCD are often living with other mental health concerns that also need to be addressed in the treatment process. Individuals who are struggling with a substance use disorder along with co-occurring OCD will benefit from a comprehensive treatment program to address all their needs.

The treatment process begins with a mental health professional completing a thorough evaluation, which is used to identify and address areas where an individual needs the most concentrated care. The areas of concern that are noted early in the evaluation process will provide structure for the remainder of an individual’s treatment.

Each person will then work closely with their treatment team to develop therapeutic goals and engage in a variety of personalized interventions that will assist them in achieving long-term recovery. Treatment is most beneficial when provided at a comprehensive facility that is equipped to care for individuals who are living with addiction and co-occurring OCD.

Seeking mental health treatment may be a new journey for you, but the expert staff at Sierra by the Sea will be there the entire way. You can receive the support you need to find long-term healing and learn to manage the symptoms of co-occurring OCD and addiction.

Why Consider Treatment at Sierra by the Sea

Why seek treatment for co-occurring obsessive-compulsive disorder at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

If co-occurring OCD remains untreated, individuals are at risk for experiencing a variety of adverse outcomes. These effects may be far-reaching and can prevent a person from fulfilling work responsibilities, leading to demotion, disciplinary action, or loss of employment. Co-occurring OCD may also prevent individuals from satisfying household obligations, such as paying rent and maintaining safe living conditions.

These outcomes may also impact an individual’s ability to form or maintain relationships with family, friends, and significant others. If an individual is continually unable to interact with others and displays difficulty in a variety of social settings, this may cause isolation and withdrawal.

An individual who has untreated OCD may also suffer from medical issues related to skin picking or hair pulling. Behaviors such as skin picking can cause open wounds, which may lead to infection if they are not cleaned and treated. Each of these effects has the potential to impair an individual’s quality of life and physical health.

Whether an individual is experiencing these adverse outcomes in one or several areas of their life, they may find it difficult to engage in simple daily tasks or hobbies that once brought them joy. If they do not receive comprehensive care, the unmanaged symptoms of addiction and co-occurring OCD may cause their health to deteriorate and lead to other mental health concerns, such as suicidal ideation, self-harm, or depression.

Thankfully, the treatment you need is well within your reach. When you receive care at Sierra by the Sea, you can begin to adopt a new mindset that will improve your well-being. The treatment and attention you receive at Sierra by the Sea can improve your outlook on life while connecting you with the personalized services you need to achieve lasting recovery.
