Project Description

Program Overview

The Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder & Complex Anxiety Disorder Track offers specialized interventions to support those patients who have a diagnosis of OCD or a  complex anxiety disorder (such as Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, or Specific Phobia) that persistently interferes with daily functioning. Specific treatments for OCD and panic can include Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy and Habit Reversal Training. Patients attend group therapy sessions and meet with an exposure therapist on a daily basis to address the patient’s symptoms and triggers leading to avoidance and/or compulsions.  Currently this track is available for patients admitted to PHP or IOP.

Treatment Goals

Individualized treatment plans addressing psychiatric symptoms and therapeutic goals are developed for each patient by Compass’ multidisciplinary team. Evidence-based therapies used to help children develop more effective coping skills include Exposure Response Prevention (ERP),  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and family therapy.

Families are encouraged but not required to participate in family therapy, as it greatly facilitates the patient’s improvement.
