TELEMENTAL HEALTH IS AVAILABLE.

Emily DiNuzzo reports accounts of individuals with OCD and Pure O.

Samantha Jean describes “I remember one of my therapists said you might not always be afraid of germs but [OCD] will always be there and it’ll come back in different ways,” Jean says. “The obsessions don’t always stay the same.”

David Austern, PsyD, clinical instructor of psychiatry at NYU Langone Health, notes that the term Pure O isn’t often used in the medical community anymore and could be a bit misleading. That’s mainly because treatment for Pure O and OCD is the same.
