Obsessed: A New Series on A&E

obsessed

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that is typically characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions).

Repetitive behaviors such as hand washing, counting, checking, or cleaning are often performed with the hope of preventing obsessive thoughts or making them go away. Performing these so-called “rituals,” however, provides only temporary relief, and not performing them markedly increases anxiety.

A new series premiering this Monday, May 25th on A&E titled “Obsessed”, will explore Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and the people who live with the anxiety disorder everyday. Like “Intervention”, A&E’s “Obsessed” promises to follow individuals suffering from OCD who are seeking treatment.

A&E explores the world of individuals suffering from extreme anxiety disorders, including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder and Hoarding, and tells the stories of their struggles to overcome them in the new original nonfiction series “Obsessed.” The eleven episode, one-hour series debuts Monday, May 25 at 10pm ET/PT following the season premiere of the Emmy®-nominated “Intervention.”
