Treatment Approach

The program is based on empirically supported research, asserting that intensive specialty treatment, utilizing evidence-based treatment protocols, is effective in treating severe obsessive compulsive disorder, obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders (such as social anxiety, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder), and other coexisting conditions. To achieve maximum benefit for patients, the program adheres to the following assumptions:

1. We use state-of-the-art evidence-based cognitive-behavioral and psychopharmacological treatment modalities.

2. We encourage normalization by patient participation in decision-making about treatment and by providing treatment in a caring environment.

3. We design and provide services in a way that supports, educates, and empowers the patient.

4. We attend to the individual’s physical, emotional, social, and economical problems.

5. Our long-term goal is to establish healthy functioning individuals and families.
