OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) has never been so useful.

The first step is always the hardest.

Now that norms have changed and handwashing has become a weapon of self-defense, do I still need to let go of my compulsions? OCD does not happen overnight, it is often a struggle of years before it is diagnosed. With the crisis of the Pandemic situation, previously unrecognized compulsive behaviors are becoming more visible. Learn to balance your thoughts and feelings as they relate to Obsessive patterns of thoughts and the Compulsive behaviors which attempt to soothe the thoughts. This group will help those who have been receiving individual therapy and will serve as a safe ground for support of those who have overcome or not even started addressing OCD.

We are in the process of change and we are in this together.

Tuesdays 3:00 – 4:00pm

Hoarding is Today’s New Norm.

You can have it, but think twice…

All purchases are only a click away and there are good reasons for wanting to take precautionary measures. Some of us have lived with fears of letting go from memories, objects, knowledge for most of our lives and today’s situation of COVID-19 is not helping. Learn how to declutter old or new clutter, physical or emotional clutter, and welcomed or unwelcomed clutter without letting go of your identity, memories, or values. Join us for a hands on guided hoarding group which will keep you engaged throughout the week with assignments and activities.

We are in the process of change and we are in this together.

Tuesdays 4:00 – 5:00 pm

Adapting to COVID-19 Changes.

Half full or half empty (COVID-19 Pandemic)? / Acceptance is The Real challenge!

Change can be hard in all stages of life and there are times when it is inevitable. Our lives have changed drastically since the outbreak of a feared invisible enemy. Learn how to adapt in healthy ways without letting go of yourself and your identity. Gain skills to eliminate the struggles of trying to avoid certain thoughts and instead experience life based on your values and morals. These skills will teach you to bring an open and willing attitude towards unwanted changes that exist whether we want them or not. The more we engaged in the avoidance of change the more we will suffer.

We are in the process of change and we are in this together.

Family Night.

As a part of ongoing efforts to support our community amid the outbreak of COVID-19, PCI is offering an open and interactive virtual discussion with Dr. Miriam Hamideh and Dr. Joshua Diamond to patients, friends, and family to provide helpful information and respond to any concerns.

We will be discussing what measures PCI is taking to provide continued group and individual medical consultations and psychotherapy sessions on an online platform. Additionally, we will provide current medical updates on the virus, as well as explore the impact of home isolation measures on substance use disorder, recovery, and potential of relapse. The latter half of the meeting will be dedicated to answering any questions that may arise.

We at PCI strive to ensure the safety and security of our community’s well being, and hope to be your trusted resource for information about the shifts our community is facing, and how they may pertain to mental health and substance use.

We hope to see you for tonight’s discussion.

Tuesdays 7:00 – 8:00pm
