Testimonials from Our Sister Program
The program is very sound and practical. The staff couldn’t be any more supportive and helpful. They, one and all, treat you in a very warm and respectful way. I would recommend the program to anyone who has tried outpatient therapy and has not progressed in a satisfactory way.
For people who have OCD or another anxiety disorder, there is hope! Before I started the Houston OCD Program, my severe OCD caused me not to do much outside my house. I thought I was the only one out there and did not speak about my problem for a long time until now. The treatment program enabled me to get out and not isolate myself. The program taught me to let the fear go and just move on. I strongly recommend the Houston OCD Program to anybody with an anxiety disorder or OCD who wants their life back!
The Houston OCD Program is an incredible resource for anyone struggling with OCD. If you have made a decision to really commit to treatment and doing whatever it takes to get better, this is the place to be. The structure of the program gives you time to devote to facing your fears, and the patients around you really inspire you to push through the exposures. The staff is great at seeing how your OCD is playing out. You have to be ready, but if you are, it’s fantastic!
I would like to thank each and every one of you for all your hard work and support. This has been a life changing experience for me, and I will always remember the hard times and, even more so, the good times. For the first time in as long as I can remember, the good actually outweighs the bad. I will never forget any of you, and you all will always hold a place in my heart. Again, thank you so much for helping me face my fears and giving me the tools and confidence to get my life back.
I benefited very much from the program. My therapist was just outstanding, and Saharah was also very professional, kind, and accommodating. The whole staff really cared about me and my progress. I felt like the exposure therapy was the key to my improvement along with learning ways to cope with my worry cycle and anxieties. In short, I thought it was a great and caring program, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others, or to return there myself if ever the need would arise.
I was with the team when they were at Menninger and when they closed their doors. I’ve had OCD for the last 12 years of my life and before I went into treatment it had literally taken over every aspect of my life. Every move I made was consumed by OCD. The monster made me suffer with rechecking, reassurance seeking, confessions, contamination fears, sexual obsessions, hit and run fears and pretty much everything but hoarding and scrupulosity. It was extremely hard work, but I can now say I have a life back, when before I wasn’t even sure if I’d be living. They taught me the tools to live my life and keep my OCD manageable. The staff was truly amazing and literally saved my life. Although they will say that it was me who did the hard work, without their caring and kind hearts I would never have been able to do it.
The Houston OCD Program was of great benefit to me in that I was able to take large strides in reclaiming part of my life that before was lost due to OCD. I had suffered with severe OCD for over a year with contamination fears and rituals taking a large part of my time. Through seven weeks of hard work and with the leadership of expert staff who make up The Houston OCD Program, I was able to make drastic improvement in the severity of my OCD symptoms. There is still some work to do but I am very capable now, using the tools that I learned from the program, to get my life back and make it even better. I appreciate the entire staff at the Houston OCD Program for helping me through a difficult illness, so to them I say thanks.
Before I entered the program I was not able to function around my house or anywhere. My days were consumed with washing and cleaning. It was hopeless. I couldn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel. But, with God’s help and the Houston OCD Program’s help, I am now able to function at my house and in public. Thank you all.
Going to treatment at the Houston OCD Program was the most challenging and yet best decision I have ever made for myself. The staff was extremely supportive and I left well educated about OCD and how to manage my symptoms.
The Houston OCD Program is there to educate, guide, assist, and motivate you to battle your OCD. You’ve really got to push hard, but you CAN do it and once you do, you will find so much freedom, joy, and serenity in your life.
