The rehab I went to was really good. I went to Avery's House. It was welcoming, accepting, and they really do care about us. It was literally a house so it didn't feel like a hospital or treatment center at all. quote-icon

As many as 1 in 200 children and teens will experience OCD in their lifetime

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a stressful cycle of obsessions, anxiety and compulsions (or rituals) that can disrupt every area of a teen’s life. The more rituals are practiced, the stronger OCD gets. The good news is that it’s treatable, and Avery’s House can help.


A safe & supportive place to heal

Avery’s House is a teen mental health treatment home. Our specialized professionals work with adolescents to evaluate, diagnose, & support various mental health conditions, including depression. We provide a non-judgemental, LGBTQA+-friendly environment where teens can safely begin or continue their treatment.

Does my child need help

Only a mental health professional can diagnose obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The sooner it is diagnosed, the faster it can be treated. If you think your teen is showing signs of OCD, don’t ignore it. Talk to a trained professional at Avery’s House about how we can help.

Common symptoms of OCD in teens

OCD isn’t always easy to detect because it develops and worsens over time. Obsessive-compulsive behaviors are often illogical, excessive, disruptive, and time-consuming. Here are some signs and symptoms of OCD in adolescents:

  • Re-checking if things are right, clean, locked, etc.
  • Rewriting, redoing & rereading things like homework
  • Counting and recounting things
  • Constant worry that something bad is going to happen
  • Slow to leave the house due to routine
  • Handwashing to the point of damaged or bleeding skin
  • Hoarding objects
  • Need for order, symmetry, or prevision

What causes OCD?

Like other mental health disorders, there is no definitive cause of OCD. A person can develop compulsive behaviors to cope with the anxiety & stress of obsessions. Risk factors that may increase your child’s risk of developing OCD include:

  • Genetics
  • Stressful or traumatic event
  • Learned fears and behaviors from a family member
  • Age and gender
