    Default Four Days of Intensive Therapy Can Reverse OCD for Years

    Do any members suffer from OCD?

    4 Days of Intensive Therapy Can Reverse OCD for Years - Scientific American

    Earlier this year, Kvale, Hansen and their colleagues reported findings from a long-term analysis of the treatment’s effects. The study, published August in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, revealed that 56 of 77 patients remained in remission four years after treatment—and that 41 of the 56 had fully recovered. Treatment outcome was independent of whether participants had previously undergone therapy or were on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Cipralex, commonly used medications for OCD. When the team members compared their findings to published analyses of other less-intensive exposure treatments, they found that the Bergen technique led to significantly higher rates of remission and recovery.

    No, but I have to pay £100,000 to some guy claiming to be my brother so that he can treat his OCD that my father was apparently somehow responsible for. I'd like to know how much this treatment actually costs lol. Probably not £100,000.

I used to suffer from "hypochondria," which initiated OCD in certain aspects of my life....I was able to get out of the situation by focusing on the adrenal glands, so I could be more resistant to future stressors.

    One problem is that it is not possible to face all triggers in this manner.

    Yet one small step is one giant leap for mankind.

    There isn't a perfect treatment in mental or physical health. That said, this treatment kicks ass, relative to long-term to lifetime recovery rates.

    That isn't comforting in the moment to someone with OCD.

    Unless you've tried the treatment, I don't think you can comment so assertively about its comfort or not.

    I'm not going to describe and defend my illness to you.

    I was pointing out one potential problem with the treatment, a problem that seems extremely obvious to me, and was not saying the entire program is worthless by any means. Of course it's valuable, it's just not going to work in every case.

    This sounds pretty great.
    I wonder if this can help me at all. It isn’t OCD but definitly habitually self-destructive behavior.
