OCD: The Broken Record of Stressolder female counselor takes notes as she comforts female patient during ocd treatment

When you start obsessing over something, it is extremely difficult to stop thinking about it. As a result, the broken record keeps spinning in your head like an uncontrollable pattern. Thoughts turn into behaviors which play out a sort of ritual over and again.

It does not matter whether what you are stressing over is real or imagined. If it is in your brain, then it paints a picture of reality that may or may not be accurate. This is the vicious cycle of obsessive-compulsive disorder. This cycle usually consists of some theme such as promptness, germs, organization, or drug and alcohol addiction.

What Are the Symptoms of OCD?

One of the things that we look for is symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder that disrupt your daily life. The main symptom to look for is repetitive thoughts and actions that are hard to control. As your OCD gets worse, so do your urges or negative thoughts. Some of the symptoms you may experience include:

  • Fear of an item, a person, or your environment
  • An uncontrollable thought that everything needs to be in order
  • Aggressive thoughts that you may hurt yourself or someone else
  • A fixation on an object or something that you want to experience over and again
  • Doubts about an action that you should have taken but may have forgotten

The thing about OCD is that you may try to ignore your thoughts, but you can’t seem to shake them. They can paralyze you mentally and keep you from moving forward or being productive.

Your treatment program will consist of a complete analysis of your OCD and your addiction to determine the right path to recovery. Once we assess your condition, we can help you find the proper treatment.

Dual Diagnosis for OCD and Addiction

OCD and addiction are often co-occurring disorders. Every time you go through an OCD episode, you may turn to alcohol or drugs to self-medicate. In turn, your addiction can make your OCD even worse than it already is.

Dual diagnosis treatment allows us to provide care for both your addiction and OCD while treating both at the same time. If we can help you manage your symptoms of OCD, then you stand a better chance of getting clean or sober. When your mind is strong, then you have what it takes to end the cycle of addiction for good.
