“This is an extremely serious disorder,” said Ken Littlefield, PsyD, psychologist at the OCD program at Remuda Ranch. “Individuals with OCD face significant impairment in functioning and quality of life. We have developed a comprehensive residential treatment program to help women, ages 18 and older, achieve freedom from the grip of OCD and related disorders.”

Remuda Ranch’s specialized residential programs treat:

  • OCD
  • panic disorder
  • agoraphobia
  • social anxiety disorder
  • body dysmorphic disorder

“Our metropolitan location provides additional therapeutic experiences,” said JoAnna Shapiro, executive administrator at Remuda Ranch in Chandler, Ariz. “The program setting is in a home environment which provides the opportunity for residents to experience success over their compulsions and to live an effective life.”

An experienced team of multi-disciplinary professionals conduct a comprehensive assessment of each resident’s history and current state of mental health. The outcomes of this assessment are used to create an individualized set of treatment goals and a step-by-step plan to achieve these goals. The length of stay is flexible and based on the specific needs of the resident.

“Our evidence-based therapies have helped thousands of women find relief from the symptoms of OCD and other anxiety disorders,” adds Dr. Littlefield.

Evidence-based treatment components of Remuda Ranch’s OCD program include:

  • exposure with response prevention (ERP)
  • behavioral therapy
  • cognitive restructuring
  • experiential therapy
