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 assist in developing helpful thought patterns and healthy behaviours in recovery and beyond.
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) for developing the skills needed to manage emotions and relationships, practice mindfulness, and survive crises.
  • Individual psychotherapy for an empathetic and safe space to discuss personal recovery concerns and develop treatment goals.
  • Group therapy to provide opportunities for peer support and professionally guided emotional processing.
  • Psychoeducational sessions to help you understand yourself and the nature of OCD.
  • Mindfulness and physical exercise for creating healthy, lasting habits.

Why Bellwood’s Inpatient Treatment May Be Right For You

Inpatient treatment offers a more immersive environment, 24/7 support, and increased access to medical care than outpatient programs. This comprehensive approach is often more effective for recovery.

Bellwood prides itself on being one of the best inpatient facilities in Ontario. Steps from Toronto’s Sunnybrook Park, our inpatient facilities are designed to facilitate healing.

Generally speaking, a longer inpatient treatment program will produce better results than a shorter program. However, if your life situation requires you to pursue a shorter or more flexible treatment program, Bellwood does offer an Intensive Outpatient Program.

A Day at Bellwood, a Toronto Facility from the EHN Canada Network

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 verdant campus with an evening walk.
