What is OCD Challenge?

OCD Challenge is an on line, interactive, behavioral program designed to help people suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The program was built by psychologists who are leaders in the field of behavior therapy and have a specialization in the area of OCD. OCD Challenge has four Modules: Assessment, Gaining Awareness, Intervention, Maintenance. Users will be guided through the Modules and taught skills and strategies for managing their OCD behavior. OCD Challenge uses the principles of exposure and response prevention (the treatment of choice for OCD) to help the user to confront and challenge their OCD. OCD Challenge is not therapy and there is not a therapist on the other end of the computer telling you what to do. Instead, OCD Challenge is a program built to interact with the user in a way that is interesting, useful, and moves the user toward change.

How long does the program take to work?

The OCD Challenge program takes about 8-12 weeks to complete.

How hard is it to challenge my OCD?

Each person is a little different. While challenging OCD is hard, some people are so ready (due to anger, frustration and exhaustion) to fight their OCD that they face it head on. Others may be more cautious, more fearful in their approach to the challenge. We encourage you to face your OCD head on, to face you fears and to learn to live without doubt!
