Finding OCD Support Groups

The International OCD Foundation's new list of support groups is now live! I had started a list of OCD support groups for adults in the US and Canada when the IOCDF's page was under construction. I am going to leave it up for now, but I encourage readers to go to the IOCDF's support group page. You can search by location or alphabetically.

If there isn't a group in your area, there is a link to a manual by Dr. Jonathan Grayson on how to start your own GOAL group. The support group I've attended is modeled on the GOAL group structure of having a time of sharing followed by making a concrete goal for an exposure to do before the next group meeting. It was very helpful to have accountability and support from other people who understood what it's like to have OCD.
