At Happiness studio, we offer the Best Psychiatrist for OCD and psychological interventions so that assessments can aid the OCD treatment in Delhi.
OCD treatment in Delhi typically is carried out with medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two. Although most patients with OCD respond to treatment, some patients continue to experience symptoms with reduced severity.
Sometimes people with OCD may also have other comorbid mental disorders, such as anxiety, depression, and body dysmorphic disorder, a disorder in which someone mistakenly believes that a part of their body is abnormal. These are also considered when making decisions about treatment.
Research shows that psychotherapy, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and other related therapies (e.g., habit reversal training) can be as effective as medication for many individuals. Exposure and Response Prevention (EX/RP) – spending time in the very situation that triggers compulsions (e.g. touching dirty objects) but then being prevented from undertaking the usual resulting compulsion (e.g. handwashing) – is effective in reducing compulsive behaviors in OCD, even in people who did not respond well to SSRI medication.
Considering Research and evidence based practices, treatment plans are made corresponding to severity and magnitude experienced by the patient. Here at Happiness studio, the Best Psychiatrist for OCD and psychotherapy is available for OCD treatment in Delhi.
