Our Intensive Outpatient Program for Children With OCD

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts and/or repetitive behaviors. While OCD can arise at any time during a person's life, it frequently emerges during childhood and adolescence.

The intensive outpatient program at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital provides more intense and frequent services than traditional outpatient treatment, but is less restrictive than an inpatient program.
