Can I Get Treatment for My OCD and Anxiety?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety can be debilitating. These conditions are not just stereotypical feelings of worry or stress but rather intense and uncontrollable patterns of thoughts and behaviors that can significantly impact one’s daily life. For those who live with OCD, their mind is constantly consumed by intrusive thoughts, leading them to perform ritualistic behaviors in an attempt to alleviate their anxiety. Finding help at an OCD and anxiety treatment center can provide relief and support for those living with these conditions.

Red Oak Recovery® specializes in mental health treatment for young men 18–30. Our clinician-run treatment center in North Carolina provides evidence-based therapies for OCD and anxiety, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) models that address the underlying causes of these conditions. Call 828.382.9699 to start OCD treatment for young men.

Understanding OCD and Anxiety

OCD is a mental health condition characterized by intrusive, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions) that a person feels compelled to perform. Common symptoms include excessive cleanliness, repetitive checking, and a need for symmetry or order.

Anxiety, on the other hand, involves excessive worry, fear, and apprehension about various aspects of life. It can manifest through physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, and trembling. Unlike OCD, anxiety does not typically involve compulsive behaviors, but it can still be debilitating.

While both conditions can cause significant distress, they differ in their manifestations. OCD is marked by the presence of obsessions and compulsions, whereas anxiety is characterized by pervasive worry and fear. Understanding these differences is crucial for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Evidence-Based Treatment Can Help

At Red Oak Recovery®, we offer evidence-based treatment for OCD and anxiety. Our expert clinicians use various approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), to address the underlying causes of these conditions.

CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on challenging and changing negative thoughts and behaviors. It helps individuals learn coping strategies and develop more adaptive ways of thinking. By understanding the root cause of their symptoms, individuals can make significant progress in managing their OCD or anxiety.

Medication May Be Right for You

In some cases, medication may be necessary to manage the symptoms of OCD and anxiety. Red Oak’s compassionate team works closely with clients to determine if medication is appropriate for their unique situation. If so, we provide a comprehensive treatment plan that combines therapy and medication for optimal results.
