OCD can be a co-occurring disorder. Here at South Coast Counseling we treat patients with OCD and valium addiction and OCD and alcohol abuse. Each patient we see is thoroughly evaluated so we can come up with a personalized treatment plan that can effectively and accurately treat the disorders that you are experiencing.

Regardless of whether you are suffering from a single problem or a dual diagnosis, our experts can help you regain control of the situation and get your life back on track. Those suffering from OCD usually have the disorder focusing around specific themes. As an example, OCD can revolve around the fear of germ contamination. To help resolve your fears of contamination, you may wash your hands compulsively until they become chapped and sore. Because you can’t fend off the urges, you may encounter a ritualistic behavior.
