FIU: OCD patients benefit from family-inclusive treatments, says FIU psychologist

One in 40 adults in the United States have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). That means that among the 54,000 students at FIU, more than 1,300 have OCD.

OCD is a neurobiological disorder – it invades the thoughts of those who suffer from it. The repetitive, intrusive and unwanted thoughts triggered by OCD cause intense distress and often cause individuals to engage in repeated behaviors, rituals or routines that only result in short-term relief.
