Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder interferes with a person’s functionality and disrupts everyday activities. Getting support and assistance for OCD can be overwhelming for those who are diagnosed, for their family, and for their friends.
It’s not uncommon to hear diagnosed patients struggle with treatment decisions because of confusion or fear toward issues such as therapy, residential care, and outpatient treatment options. To help people suffering from OCD, Edward Matisk, author of the book The Americans With Disabilities Act formed Support for OCD. In the article featured in Behavioral Healthcare’s site, Matisik says he wants to help people with OCD as “a guide, and advocate and a friend.”
The national group guides people with OCD to understand the healthcare and the legal systems so they can attain necessary assistance. Support for OCD researches different, evidence-based treatment options like cognitive behavior therapy, obtains legal assistance to offer individuals information about insurance, employment or education, and gives compassionate, non-judgmental, solution-focused support.
