Made by people with OCD, along with some of the world's top experts. NOCD offers clinically effective therapy tools for obsessive-compulsive disorder that can be used whenever and wherever you need help.
- Immediate guidance when OCD symptoms make things tough
- Custom treatment plans and exercises, built around CBT, ERP, and ACT

- Protected treatment data to share with clinicians and loved ones

Effective treatment methods like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) have been developed, but they're difficult to understand and even harder to complete.
The NOCD app allows you to continue treatment throughout the week and eliminates many of the barriers to successful treatment. No more carrying paper and pen around, or forgetting therapy because you're busy. If you're looking for an easier way to feel better, try NOCD.
What is OCD?
OCD is a common psychiatric disorder that involves repetitive, unwanted thoughts and compulsive behaviors intended to reduce the anxiety caused by those thoughts. Commonly misunderstood as an annoying personality quirk, OCD usually involves intense distress and can become completely debilitating.
NOCD, Inc. is not a treatment company, and the NOCD app is not intended as a standalone treatment. Although this app is developed with clinicians to closely resemble established treatment protocols, it is intended to be used in conjunction with a therapist or another medical provider.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is made for Hollywood’s portrayal of OCD
The exercise doesn’t work for things that happen randomly to you. For example, I don’t like my alarm being set for random hours when something originally had happened to me or making a wish for something and then a few hours later something negative happened. Then it says “expose yourself to it”. I’m not at a wishing well to throw another penny and making a wish again. AND I don’t need to set my alarm right now! So it’s not bothering me. This is for people who don’t like their hands getting physically messy or their books aren’t perfectly in order. FYI that’s not real OCD, that’s OCD portrayed by Hollywood. Real OCD is not being able to go to the bathroom without flushing the toilet 3 times or something bad will happen or walking up and down your staircase 10 times til it “feels right” or refusing to touch certain people because you think something bad will happen. The last OCD I had was when I was smelling Yankee candles, and if I smelled a bad one or it wasn’t a good smell and left the store, something bad would arise. What am I supposed to drive 45 mins away to the Yankee candle store just to do this app? That’s real OCD. Washing your hands 18 times is Hollywood OCD. Maybe get some people who have actual OCD to fix this app. OCD is almost superstitious.

We're sorry the app has been a confusing experience for you so far. Your feedback is really helpful as we keep working to make it better.
Since a few of us have OCD too, we definitely understand the frustration when it seems like people are talking about "Hollywood OCD" all the time. Many of our users with similar needs use our SOS feature to start practicing immediately when random obsessions and compulsions set in. As always, feel free to send us an email at email@example.com. Thanks again!
Isn’t ideal for all kinds of OCD
One of my bad obsessions with having to complete everything I start often gets me stuck doing something I don’t need to do for much longer than is acceptable. Oftentimes, this involves using my phone for entertainment apps. I was hoping nOCD would help me stay on point, but the timer doesn’t run when I have another app open, so it never asks me for my anxiety levels when I try to complete the exercises. I was terrible the first exercise and wasted 30-40 minutes without realizing it, hungry and needing to do other things.
I like the concept though, and app generally runs smooth.

Hi there, and thanks for this great feedback! If we could get a few more details about your needs, it would help us find ways to make this a better experience for you. Because there are so many different types of symptoms (as you know very well), we're always looking to give people better solutions. If you don't mind, send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can see what might work better.
An easy fix but a deal breaker for now
I love the way this app provides feedback to keep users returning to complete ERP homework. Unfortunately, the inability to toggle between apps without pausing the exposure timer means that I won't be able to continue using it as I transition to new exercises. Being able to do so is ESSENTIAL for users who need to pull up a piece of content related to their obsession in a different app such as a photograph or script. Part of the beauty of this app is the discretion it provides when completing ERP outside of the home. I will miss using it and hope a work around is developed soon.
