The Bergen 4-Day OCD Treatment group was completed in Los Angeles on April 2nd

We are thrilled to announce that our program recently hosted its first Bergen 4-Day Treatment (B4DT) group for OCD with Dr. Bjarne Hansen, co-founder of the evidence-based, concentrated treatment method. Patients came from across the world, including Australia, Germany, and Switzerland, and from across the United States— as far as Florida, and as nearby as Los Angeles, California. It was a tremendous experience for our patients to experience such a dramatic reduction in OCD symptoms over the course of just four days. We, as the clinical team, are truly humbled to witness our patients’ courage and individual transformations.

It is so very exciting that this effective treatment is now available to be delivered in English in Los Angeles. We look forward to hosting future B4DT groups, with the next starting May 28, 2024. Moving forward, we will be hosting one B4DT group a month, at minimum.
