Obsessive Compulsive Anonymous in Ontario
posted on August 15, 2017
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a disorder where one experiences a mix of obsessive and compulsive thoughts and/or behaviours. Most of the time, acting out on compulsions eases the anxiety of obsessive thoughts.
According to the Canadian Psychological Association, “Approximately 1% to 2% of the Canadian population will have an episode of OCD, with the possibility that slightly more women experience the disorder than men.”
OCD can get lonely because not many people understand. That’s why there are support groups, like Obsessive Compulsive Anonymous.
“Obsessive Compulsive Anonymous is a self-help group that meets together weekly to support each other in recovering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The group has a spiritual focus and is based on the 12 step program.”
