Achieving Wellness from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a treatment study sponsored by NIMH.


Subject 376628 - I went to other therapists and psychiatrists and that just made it worse for me.  This type of treatment was the best for me and was the only thing that actually helped. 

"Being a part of this research study helped me more than I could have imagined. The staff could not have been more amazing and attentive and the therapy was among the best I've ever had. I have never known wellness from OCD like I did after finishing this study. I would absolutely recommend becoming a part of this study if you are suffering from OCD like I was."

"My husband is in the OCD study, today is his last day. It was a tough journey but a good one! The treatment was great as well as the team of professionals who made a world of difference for him. He still has somewhat of a struggle but now knows how to deal with it. He has made tremendous progress. I can see his improvement day by day and I know he will continue to 100% recovery thanks to your program. He never could have done it without you!"

“I am extremely grateful for the excellent help and service offered to me via the study at the University of Pennsylvania. I struggled with OCD and went through two therapists before coming to the University of Pennsylvania, and I didn’t know if I was going to get better. But, thanks to the effective approach employed by the therapist who treated me in the study, I was able to not only recover but also learn techniques for managing my OCD in case it becomes worse in the future – something that is crucial for leading and maintaining a normal lifestyle again. The nurse and doctor who treated me in the study were kind, understanding, and helpful as well, which I appreciated. I strongly recommend joining the study and getting excellent treatment from the University of Pennsylvania staff!”

“Consistent with the world-class reputation of the facility, the staff at the CTSA combines competence and compassion with a level of technical expertise that is likely without equal. It is no exaggeration to describe the experience as life-changing.”

“I can't tell you how much happier I am!  I am enjoying the freedom from OCD and can't believe how much time I have left to enjoy life.  I'm still in a daze because I no longer have to follow certain rules, rituals, etc.  I haven't felt this way for 10 years. I can't believe I was there a year ago and how much I've come along.  I never thought I would have freedom from OCD to be happy!”

“Very helpful, the best OCD therapy I’ve ever had.  I enjoyed how specialized the treatment was and it was so helpful that is focused on my OCD.  Other therapists just wanted me to talk and didn’t care what the talking was about but here they actually helped me.”
