We have a research study available for adults with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The purpose of this research study is to understand whether an investigational drug, when added to your current treatment, can bring about a reduction in OCD symptoms.
The investigational medication will be provided at no cost and compensation is provided for time and travel. No health insurance is required to participate in any of our OCD studies.
What is Obsessive-compulsive
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, also known as OCD, occurs when a person gets caught in a cycle of obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that trigger intensely distressing feelings. Compulsions are behaviors an individual engages in to attempt to get rid of the obsessions and/or decrease his or her distress.
A diagnosis of OCD requires the presence of obsession and/or compulsions that are time-consuming (more than one hour a day), cause major distress, and impair work, social or other important function.1
