Summary
Their behavior is strange, and they know it. Fixated on particular actions, they perform them over and over. The startling fact is that 1 in every 40 Americans is affected by OCD to varying degrees. A recently developed program, however, is bringing hope to millions of sufferers. Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz believes that many patients, by gaining self-awareness, can cure themselves. Two patients in this program believe it too, and testify that Schwartz's three-step treatment has helped them to successfully control their obsessive-compulsive behaviors. The patients include a man who compulsively saves newspapers, and a women who counts and recounts the items in her refrigerator.
