MSAM prides itself on providing effective, empirically-based treatments. We are specialists in the treatment of OCD and anxiety. In evaluations, we know that the needs of each individual are unique. Furthermore, we recognize that the patients’ needs inform the best-practice treatment method chosen. Finally, all of the treatment methods we use are well-tested standards in the field.
We offer comprehensive treatment that includes individual treatments as well as an intensive treatment for OCD. We believe that we go one step further in providing comprehensive treatment by including group experiences. For example, the center has an OCD support group, a mindfulness training group, and a grief recovery group. These groups are led by Harold Kirby, who is a certified trainer for mindfulness and grief recovery. In conclusion, we think that group experiences augment individual treatment and help to prevent relapse.
