OCFighter™ s an interactive, internet guided self-help (GSH) treatment program for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It uses the evidence based approach known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and was adapted from the previously validated BT STEPS program for OCD. The program teaches the best practice CBT technique to help with OCD called exposure with ritual prevention (ERP).
