Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is a relatively common and long-lasting chronic mental illness. People with OCD exhibit signs of recurring thoughts and uncontrollable behaviors characterized as obsessive thoughts and compulsive actions. These behavioral side-effects that cause the need to repeat things are the most known symptoms of OCD. While a Veteran diagnose with OCD, might try to self-medicate through substances, the addition of Alcohol Addiction or Prescription Drug Abuse make symptoms worse.


With the use of therapy or medications, finding effective treatments is imperative. Among the most affected areas of life are school, work, and close family relationships. Most obsessions associated with obsessive compulsive disorder are described as repetitive thoughts or mental images that often contribute to the development of anxiety disorders.


As a member of the VA Community Care Network, our goal is to help Veterans overcome this disorder. Our Veterans Rehab treatment centers programs find success through mindfulness techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, and medication management.



Obsessions Over Causing Harm

The fear of being the cause of something horrific taking place. Such as starting a fire accidentally or the reason someone gets robbed or a fear of being the reason someone suffers a moderate to severe injury because of not being correctly cautious.

Losing Control Obsessions

The fear of suddenly yelling at other people or shouting insults across the room or the fear of feeling the sudden urge to try and steal something. This could also look like the fear of impulsively acting in a way that will harm yourself or others.

Contamination Obsessions

This could look like a fear or obsession with contaminants like radiation or asbestos that can frequently be found in the environment. Common everyday household chemicals such as various cleaning agents or a wide-variety of germs and diseases of every kind.

Often seen as the second phase of OCD symptoms, some people have expressed that their compulsive behaviors sometimes provide some slight relief from the obsessive and overwhelming thoughts.

Without any other proper solutions, some OCD patients say that certain compulsions are often an easy decision. Especially when desperately seeking ways to cope with their conditions. However, studies show that this relief is only temporary and should not be used as a self-medicating strategy.

Compulsions also have specific categories.


Mental Compulsions

Continously praying in efforts to avoid any negative consequences or harm. Unnecessary habits of trying to take back actions or what was said. Review previous life events to prevent anything harmful to themselves or others if it were to happen again in the future. Keeping an accurate count of completed tasks, making sure that the last one ends on a "safe" number.

Needing to Wash or Clean Things Excessively

Cleaning around the house unnecessarily and seemingly with no end. Unnecessary habits of trying to take back actions or what was said. Review previous life events to prevent anything harmful to themselves or others if it were to happen again in the future.


Checking, often uncontrollably, just to make sure something terrible has not occured. Continually circling back to check your work to ensure that there were no errors made. Repeatedly checking that the things you do are not causing any injury to yourself or anyone else. Spending excessive amounts of time checking on your body to make sure your overall physical condition is in good shape.
