Understanding and Treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Anxiety is a fairly normal and healthy emotion. When someone often experiences elevated levels of anxiety on a frequent basis, that is when it can become a disorder.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is defined as a mental illness that causes repeated unwanted thoughts or sensations (obsessions) or the urge to do something over and over again (compulsions). Some people can have both obsessions and compulsions.
