Types of OCD

Are There Different Types of OCD?


At The Center • A Place of HOPE, we recognize that OCD comes in many forms, and many different levels of intensity. Do you believe you might have OCD? At The Center, we help you understand which forms of OCD you are struggling with. We then develop a specific treatment program just for you that focuses on your optimum recovery. During your recovery,  you learn that you can, indeed, take back your life and be free of the obsessions and compulsions you have struggled with for so long.

Five Primary Types of OCD

There are five primary types of OCD, and The Center • A Place of HOPE has years of experience successfully helping those suffering from each of them to gain a new lease on life.

These types of OCD include:

  • Washers are so concerned about germs and contamination that they wash their hands obsessively until they are red and raw
  • Checkers are so concerned about the possibility of harm or danger that they obsessively check to make sure the stove or iron is off, that the door is locked or that their parking brake is on
  • Doubters are afraid something bad will happen if everything is not perfect
  • Counters or arrangers are so concerned about order that they obsessively count or arrange things to be just “right”
  • Hoarders don’t throw things away because they are afraid something bad will happen if they do

Whole-person care at The Center • A Place of HOPE

Whole-person care was created by Dr. Gregory Jantz, PhD, the founder of The Center • A Place of HOPE, in the early 1980’s. Dr. Jantz noticed that other programs were treating just the symptoms of an individual’s disorder or addiction. This type of narrowly focused treatment was not providing long-lasting care – complete recovery and freedom from one’s disorder – needed to define true success.

Treatment for the entire you — your mind, body and spirit 

Whole-person care treats your entire person, all aspects of your life – physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, fitness, spiritual – to enable complete healing for your mind, body and spirit. In this way, you work through all components of your life that have contributed to your current condition. The result is a deeper, longer-lasting and more complete recovery.

Your very own team of world-class professionals assigned just to you

At The Center • A Place of HOPE, we assign a team of world-class, licensed and board-certified professionals just to you. Team members are highly specialized and include licensed medical doctors, psychiatrists, eating disorder specialists, psychologists, nutritionists, dietitians, mental health counselors, chemical dependency counselors, fitness trainers, registered nurses, marriage and family counselors, and clergy. They take the time to get to know you personally and understand all of your life events that have contributed to your current situation. They then create a treatment program that is uniquely tailored to you, personalized to your individual needs and life experiences, and built to return you to a place of lasting balance,health and happiness.



Treatment Costs

Each treatment program is different, and the length and level of care required in each program varies. But each person discusses the cost of their program with a trained program specialist prior to arrival to fully understand what costs are involved. Costs are on a per-diem basis and include professional transportation to and from the Seattle airport, all lodging in modern luxury condominium-style apartments, morning and afternoon meals, and all treatment programs including medical and psychological evaluations. Most major insurance policies are accepted for treatment. For any out-of-pocket expenses, The Center • A Place of HOPE works with trusted financing firms to offer payment plans. Call us today at 1-888-771-5166 / 425-771-5166 to speak with a financial specialist who can help find the right solution for you.

Our Promise to You

Many programs make promises and provide quick fixes. Unfortunately, quick fixes don’t provide the lasting results needed to enjoy lifelong happiness and true recovery. At The Center • A Place of HOPE, you will notice an atmosphere of respect, confidentiality and trust in every interaction we have with you. We work with you to understand your situation and fully address your questions or concerns.

“The reason I went to The Center was to overcome Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Trauma History, Grief and Loss, Sexual Addiction and to work on Spiritual Care. I wanted to get back my zest for life learning to overcome my addiction and manage my depression in an effective way.

My experience with my treatment team was awesome, totally awesome. My experience with my medical team was also awesome. The whole team collectively was so much more than I could have hoped for. The physical to the spiritual each one had significance to my recovery from the one on ones to the groups. I believe each member of the team contributed to my recovery.

May God continue to bless each and every one of you, he has begun a great work in you and he will be faithful to finish it. My prayer is that you will continue to follow his leading and guidance. I pray that you will continue to draw on his strength each and every day, be blessed in all you put your hands to.”
