Remuda Ranch Reports Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Can Take Spiritual Values and Practices to Unhealthy Levels

Patients Who Suffer From Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Related "Scrupulosity" Successfully Treated at Remuda Ranch's Anxiety Program

PHOENIX, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of Americans suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and some of those people suffer from an often misunderstood form of OCD called scrupulosity -- an excessive concern with sin that goes well beyond the norm for an individual's religious group.

"As research and understanding of OCD increased, the term scrupulosity was applied to a subgroup of individuals who suffer from OCD," said David Wall, Ph.D., director of psychological services at Remuda Ranch (http://www.remudaranch.com). "These individuals have intrusive obsessions about sin and/or blasphemy that is to a certain degree, a symptom of their OCD."

With OCD related scrupulosity there is evidence that differentiates fervent religious practices from scrupulosity. This evidence includes:

  • The individual's religious group sees the person as overly scrupulous
  • The religious practice is based in fear, anxiety and constant doubt that are never resolved for more than a short time
  • There is a driven feeling to the religious practices without any specific goal other than to cope with obsessive doubts and fears
  • The spiritual practices are filled with self-imposed rigid rules that must be practiced perfectly
  • There is often evidence of other types of OCD either in the past or concurrently. For example, contamination, hoarding, checking

"OCD scrupulosity can be seen as healthy beliefs and activities taken to an unhealthy extreme," adds Dr. Wall. "The OCD limits the person's ability to live a balanced, enjoyable life."
