I am Hope13's son and I had extreme OCD. Alexian Brothers Behavior Health Hospital in Hoffman Estates is a great help for OCD and related Anxiety. I went there with a terrible situation and now my OCD and Social Anxiety are so much better. They have a great program started by Dr. Patrick McGrath who is tough but very helpful. They believe in exposures, situations that raise anxiety but in the long run lower anxiety, and CBT which is chalenging your thoughts and making them more rationable and positive and able you to work on your anxiety. Now my OCD is managable and I am still getting better.
