Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a condition characterized by persistent, irrational, intrusive, and irresistible thoughts and behavior that can greatly hamper day-to-day living. Common obsessions are about cleanliness (repeated washing and bathing) and security (checking the locks and bolts of doors and counting money). The patient, while aware of the lack of logic in this line of thinking, is unable to avoid such obsessions.
The molecular cause behind OCD has been identified, and there is effective treatment available. At Plexus, we offer a combination of medicines and occupational therapy approaches to help patients function efficiently and reduce the disruption OCD creates in everyday life.
