© 2021 Renewed Freedom Center.
Renewed Freedom Center is excited to offer a new online group specifically for adolescents, 13-17 years old who have OCD. This donation-based group will provide psychoeducation about OCD and its treatment, give space for adolescents to feel heard and supported by peers dealing with similar issues and allow peers to socialize and build a community to help one-another in beating OCD. Adolescents will learn specific tools and learn how to utilize Exposure and Response Prevention to help release the grip OCD has on them. The main goal of this group is to assist adolescents in building resiliency to deal with adulthood without the struggle of OCD. This group will be run by two mental health professionals who have extensive experience in the treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders.
