This is a case report of a 27-year-old male with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety who presented to a community hospital with suicidality. OCD is a rare psychiatric disorder characterized by recurrent and intrusive thoughts or obsessions and/or repetitive behaviors aimed at alleviating these thoughts known as compulsions. Management of this condition includes comprehensive evaluation of comorbidities and suicidality along with pharmacotherapy and a specific form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) called exposure and response prevention (EX/RP or ERP). This unique case report highlights the necessity of a thorough and individualized approach to treatment for each patient in order to maximize the outcomes of care.
