Peer Support is support from a person that is in long term recovery from OCD. They have lived experience and have walked in your shoes. We feel this is a vital part of our program, different from other OCD Treatment IOP’s. Having support from people with lived experience allows you to address shame and stigma from suffering with intrusive thoughts of OCD and the additional emotions that come along with recovery.
Am I bad enough for treatment?
Is this program going to help me?
What if treatment doesn’t work?
These are reasonable concerns, our response is, “Why Not?” You do not need to be in “bad” shape to benefit from OCD treatment. We would have you ponder the next set of questions to challenge your indecision:
What do you value in life that OCD has taken away?
If you were supported by people who know the in’s and out’s of OCD and some who have walked the walk, do you think you would be motivated to work on OCD in a different way?
What is virtual care is a discrete way for you to learn how to live a fully filled life with OCD?
What if people in your life really want you to work on this and reduce your suffering?
What if you do deserve it?
