The Leading Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment Center for Women & Girls

Entering treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder is a courageous choiceTimberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center offers individualized OCD treatment for adolescent girls and adult women. With our help, you can regain control of your thoughts and behaviors so that you can pursue a more fulfilling future. 

The Benefits of OCD Treatment  

When you get effective treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder, the benefits can include improvements in every part of your life. 

OCD treatment can empower you to manage your thoughts and actions. The skills you develop while in treatment for OCD can ease the pressure this disorder has been putting on your mind and body.  

In school and at work, you may be able to finally make the progress you knew you were capable of achieving. When alone or with loved ones, you may find yourself more able to be fully present and experience moments of true serenity and relaxation. 

Seeking OCD treatment will also help you see that you are not alone, and that you are both capable and worthy of receiving the support you need.   

How to Find the Right OCD Treatment 

Obsessive-compulsive disorder impacts each woman or girl in a unique way, and each person responds to treatment differently. It’s important to find the OCD treatment center that can provide you with the individualized care you deserve. 

Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center offers OCD treatment at two levels: residential program and partial hospitalization program, or PHP. 

Our residential option features round-the-clock services for adolescent girls ages 12-17 and adult women age 18 and older. OCD treatment in this level of care allows you to fully focus on your health without having to deal with the stresses or distractions of everyday life.  

Our partial hospitalization program provides full days of clinical services for adult women. When you receive OCD treatment through our PHP, you have the option of living at home or in one of our on-campus residences.  

Adult women may step down to our PHP after they’ve completed residential treatment for OCD, or they may enter treatment directly at the partial hospitalization level. 

A member of our team can answer all your questions and help you find the right OCD treatment.
