Fighting OCD is difficult especially if you are doing it on your own. Do you have family and friends that understand OCD and are supportive of your treatment? Sometimes, even when the people around us are supportive, it helps to talk with people who are going through the same things. Find a support group near you on the International OCD Foundation website using the search bar.

If you are in Utah we have a free support group at The OCD and Anxiety Treatment Center every other Tuesday night at 7 PM. 

Give us a call to find out when the next one is happening! 801-298-2000

Similar to other OCD support groups we always start with the Obsessive Compulsive Creed. How can you use this creed in your day to day life?

Letters to Panic

Written by | Amy
Below are two touching letters to panic disorder written by a previous client in the youth program and this client's mother.

Hence, exposures are targeted toward the debilitating panic to teach the brain that they live through panic attacks and can live life without avoiding things that might trigger panic.

Do you or anyone you know have panic disorder? Tell us about your experiences with panic disorder and what you have learned.
