Parent Education Group

The OCD Institute of Texas offers Parent Education Groups designed to provide guidance and support to parents of children and adolescents struggling with OCD, anxiety, and other anxiety related disorders. We aim to empower parents with knowledge and strategies to better understand and assist their children in managing OCD, anxiety, and other anxiety related disorders by fostering a nurturing and informed environment for their recovery journey.

OCDI Texas is a self-pay treatment program, therefore we do not accept payment directly from third-party providers (e.g., insurance or loan companies), unless a single case agreement is in place.

The fee for the Parent Education Group is $2100. Both guardians are welcome to attend.

Cash, check, or credit card are accepted at the time of service. Patients are responsible for all fees.
