Understanding Adolescent OCD 

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that affects people of all ages, including adolescents. It involves experiencing recurring and unwanted thoughts, known as obsessions, that lead to the urge to engage in repetitive behaviors, called compulsions. These obsessions and compulsions can be disruptive and time-consuming, causing distress and impacting daily life. 

Common signs of OCD include:  

  • Excessive hand-washing or cleaning 
  • Counting and arranging objects in a specific way 
  • Repeatedly checking things, such as locks or appliances 
  • Hoarding and difficulty throwing away items 
  • Constantly seeking reassurance or approval from others 

It’s normal for adolescents to experience some of these behaviors occasionally. However, if they occur frequently and interfere with daily activities, it may be a sign they need adolescent OCD treatment. 

Our Unique Approach to Teen OCD Treatment  

At Family First Adolescent Services, we distinguish ourselves through our innovative approach to treating adolescent OCD. We deliver evidence-based therapies and trauma-informed care, ensuring each teen receives optimal treatment. Our strategies include evidence-based therapies in individual, group, and family therapy settings.  

OCD isn’t always expressed in common ways and often results in taking goals or behaviors far past normal. Constantly exceeding these limits can cause teens to develop poor coping mechanisms, such as self-harm, substance abuse, or even physical illness. Our team of experts takes an integrative approach to address all aspects of the disorder and its effects on your teen’s life. 

A Comprehensive Adolescent Residential Treatment Program to Address OCD 

Watching your teen struggle with OCD can be overwhelming, but there is hope. We provide support for the whole family to promote long-term healing.  

How We Help Teens 

Our comprehensive treatment programming for adolescent OCD encompasses academics, therapy, continuing care, communications, family support, and experiential activities. Each treatment plan is tailored to the unique needs of every adolescent dealing with OCD, ensuring personalized attention and care. We help teach them healthy boundaries through self-exploration and confidence-building activities.  

How We Help Families 

We believe in treating the entire family unit, as OCD can impact everyone involved. Our family program provides education on OCD and its effects, along with strategies for supporting your teen during treatment and beyond. As parents, you’ll engage in group sessions with other families facing similar circumstances. You’ll also connect with your teen and a counselor in family therapy sessions, where you can work on strengthening your connections.  

A comprehensive approach to adolescent OCD treatment can help your teen move toward recovery. With our expert team and personalized treatment plans, we’re here to support your family every step of the way.
