SOMERSET – On Saturday, Oct. 16, beginning at 6:30 p.m., OCD NJ, an affiliate of the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation, will be participating in OCD Awareness Week by hosting an “OCD Stories” event.
Located in East Brunswick, members of the health community, joined by those who have OCD, will gather to share their stories about living with OCD. In attendance will be Dr. Allen H. Weg, who recently published the book, “OCD Treatment through Storytelling; A Strategy for Successful Therapy.” Dr. Weg will read some stories from his book.
In addition, the same event will be held nationwide from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. by the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation. The IOCDF is the national organization for OCD resources in the United States.
OCD symptoms can occur in people of all ages. In the United States, 1 in every fifty adults currently suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and twice that many may have had it at some point in their lives. Fortunately, very effective treatments for OCD are now available to help sufferers and their families regain a more satisfying life.
For information and directions on where this event will be held in East Brunswick, call Adrienne at 1-908-672-1927. This event is free and anyone who wants to learn more about OCD and its treatment is welcome to attend. To learn more about OCD NJ, visit www.njocf.org.
