Repeated Obsession for People with OCD

At times we repeatedly check if things are in order to ensure that everything is in its proper place. People with obsessive compulsive disorder repeatedly do something over and over to reduce his anxiety. A good example is hand washing, someone with OCD will wash his hands seven or ten times depending on his ritual and satisfaction. He may check the lock of the door many times even if he is sure that it is secure

The treatment used for this disorder is gradually reducing the activity usually done, and exposing him to the cause of his anxiety until he controls his fear and in turn gets rid of his compulsion. Having a support group or family member that can encourage the patient is also good for his treatment. Bring your love one suffering from this condition to a psychiatrist to see what help he can get.
