I think the treatment of choice for OCD would be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. That’s a treatment that will help people with the obsessive thoughts that they’re having, that they’re getting very stuck with. It will also help them with their compulsions, too. There might be ways in which they can kind of expose themselves to the things that they’re very scared of as a way of kind of disproving their anxiety or their fear.
