Partial Hospitalization Programs for Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders
About the Partial Hospitalization Programs for Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders
The Partial Hospitalization Programs for Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) and Related Disorders is a service within the Pediatric Anxiety Research Center (PARC) at Bradley Hospital. The program provides treatment to children and adolescents, ages 5 to 18, who experience significant impairment in their daily lives due to OCD, obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders and other forms of anxiety.
Watch this video to learn how clinicians at Bradley Hospital's PARC make children's mental health care more accessible, effective, patient-centered, and inclusive.
The goal of the Partial Hospitalization Programs for Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders Program for OCD treatment is to alleviate OCD symptoms while improving daily functioning and promoting further involvement in school, social, and family activities.
In line with PARC’s values of integrating research and clinical work to provide evidence-based treatment to children and adolescents, our team provides a full spectrum of research informed services, including individual, family, group, and milieu therapy. Ours is the only program on the East Coast to use a milieu-based intensive treatment model with this age group.
The Partial Hospitalization Programs for Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders can be an effective care option for youth who have not responded to traditional once a week outpatient treatment or who lack specialized OCD services where they live.
National studies have confirmed a behavioral health crisis across America. Your contribution, no matter its size, will support the premiere mental health care our programs and research provide.
