What is obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)?

Approximately 2.2 million adults have OCD, an anxiety disorder that makes everyday worries and doubts more intense, according to the NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health). A third of the clients report symptoms as early as childhood; both men and women receive the diagnosis equally. Those with OCD feel powerless to stop their ritualistic behavior, regardless of whether they realize it is senseless.

Someone may go through a door several times until it is “just right,” or a student may spend more time on a test erasing checkmarks to make them look “perfect.” Due to the time lost on their rituals, many OCD clients have difficulty going to work or school. To perfect the routine, they may repeatedly dress and undress, never leaving the house.
