Bellwood’s Approach to Treating OCD

Our Toronto OCD treatment centre uses an integrative model of care grounded in patient-centred practices that incorporates a range of therapeutic techniques and evidence-based treatments, including:

  • Intensive exposure and response prevention (ERP) for reducing OCD symptoms.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help in identifying and changing unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours related to OCD.
  • Group therapy to provide opportunities for peer support and professionally guided emotional processing, as well as develop additional skills to help you better manage your symptoms.
  • Psychoeducational sessions to help you understand yourself and the nature of OCD.
  • Mindfulness and physical exercise for creating healthy, lasting habits.

Why Bellwood’s Live-in OCD Treatment Might be Right for You

Inpatient treatment offers a more immersive environment, 24/7 support, and increased access to medical care than outpatient programs. Steps from Toronto’s Sunnybrook Park, our live-in facility is designed to encourage healing.

A Day at Bellwood, EHN Canada’s Toronto Facility

At Bellwood, every part of the patient experience is meticulously designed by our team of medical experts to promote the best chances at a successful recovery. Here’s what a typical day in Bellwood’s Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Program might look like.



You’ll set yourself up for a successful day with a healthy, chef-prepared breakfast. Then, you’ll attend one-on-one therapy in which you’ll explore the root of your OCD and learn how to manage your symptoms.



You’ll heal from the inside out with an invigorating, instructor-led workout and nutritionist-planned lunch. Then you’ll practice the exposure and response prevention (ERP) skills you learned in therapy.



You’ll wrap up the day by attending a group CBT session led by a licenced counsellor. Finally, you’ll unwind over dinner with peers and immerse yourself in the beauty of Bellwood’s campus with an evening walk.
