McLean OCD Institute at Houston is a leader in the advancement of clinical care and research for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders in children and adults. We also offer intensive treatment for adults ages 18 and older living with severe or treatment-resistant OCD.
Care incorporates individual, group, and family therapy, behavioral therapies, diagnostic assessment, consultation services, and medication evaluation and management. We utilize evidence-based treatment and therapy models, such as exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These treatment approaches are proven to help individuals struggling with OCD, anxiety, and related disorders. Treatment is customized for each individual to help ensure recovery.
Our residential, day, and outpatient programs focus on providing skills for patients to manage their illnesses on their own. The program also offers robust patient and family education and support, including educational materials, support groups, and assistance with community resources.
