Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Evaluation
There’s a difference between being a perfectionist and having OCD. OCD thoughts aren’t simply excessive worries about real problems in your life. Maybe you like to keep the floors in your house so clean that you could eat off them, or you like your drinking glasses arranged in perfect triangles, all facing the same direction, in your cabinet. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you have OCD.
But if your obsessions and compulsions are affecting your quality of life, you may need professional help. Contact The Center about our whole-person treatment programs for OCD. People with OCD may be ashamed and embarrassed about the condition, but treatment can help.
This survey is designed to gather information in significant areas of your life. This information is very important in helping to determine what level of care is appropriate for your needs. Your honesty in answering these questions is a significant step in beginning the process of recovery.
After filling out the survey you will receive a score immediately and recommendations based upon your score.
We want you to know regardless of how high your score is, There is Hope! After taking this evaluation survey you will also be able to email The Center your score to receive feedback from The Center including suggestions on how to obtain help to overcome Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
