Several support groups for individuals with OCD are conveniently located near Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Boca Raton. Some groups are facilitated by licensed clinical psychologists, whereas others are led by individuals with OCD. To view current support groups in South Florida (Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties), visit the IOCDF’s support group page here. Each support group listing provides information about the group’s focus, target age group, location, and leader. Listings also contain contact information for the sponsor of the group in case you want to obtain additional information prior to attending.
Please note: different support groups target different age groups and different OC-spectrum diagnoses (e.g., OCD, trichotillomania, hoarding). Some groups are for adults only (18+), whereas others are for children and teens with OCD. Most groups are free to the public and offer opportunities for individuals to tell their stories, share recovery strategies, and ask questions.
