New OCD Research Study at Butler Hospital
In collaboration with Gateway Healthcare, Butler Hospital has begun a research study on a new behavioral team approach to standard community treatment for OCD. Led by Butler's OCD and hoarding expert, Maria Mancebo, PhD, the Behavioral Therapy Teams for OCD Study is now enrolling.
Most people who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be helped by two established and highly effective treatments that are often used in combination: cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication. Even people with severe OCD usually benefit from these approaches.
Some individuals, however, do not get adequate relief using the above treatments despite the best efforts of themselves, their doctors, and their therapists. People in this group may be eligible to participate in new research examining Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) as a treatment for OCD.
