It: Break Free From OCD,' a National Educational Campaign -

WASHINGTON, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- More than half of adults with untreated obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) reported their condition has a negative impact on important relationships -- at work, at home, and in their personal life, according to a new national survey commissioned by the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA) and conducted by Harris Interactive. OCD is a debilitating anxiety disorder that affects more than 2 million American adults.

Of those who have received treatment for their OCD, 76 percent said it had a positive impact on their friendships, 67 percent (of those employed) reported a positive effect on their professional relationships and 62 percent reported a positive impact on their ability to have romantic relationships.

In light of these findings, ADAA has launched the "Treat It, Don't Repeat It: Break Free From OCD" campaign, a new initiative to educate Americans about the signs and symptoms of OCD and provide information about how to talk with a health care professional about treatment options.

"Our research indicates nearly one-third of all people with OCD delay treatment for 10 years or more following the appearance of their first symptoms," said Jerilyn Ross, MA, LICSW, President and CEO of ADAA. "We also know that about half of adults who are not being treated believe that more information about the benefits of the different treatments would make them more likely to seek treatment for their OCD. The goal of our campaign is to provide education and resources to help those with OCD gain a greater understanding of this disorder and find effective help."
