"Early intervention helps kids who need treatment," clarifies a headline in USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, in an article about obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This neurobehavioral disorder affects millions of people, who display ritual behaviors that they can't stop doing, such as washing their hands repeatedly, pulling their hair, or worrying obsessively about small things. Many people with OCD realize their behavior doesn't make sense, but they or their families may not know how or who to ask for help.

In this book, you'll read case studies of people with OCD and learn how they received help to manage their disorder through medications and cognitive-behavioral therapy. You'll also find basic information about symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and support to help you understand how you, your friends, and your family can manage this disorder.
