Dear COTTAGe patient:

By now, your Child & Adolescent OCD, Tic, Trichotillomania & Anxiety Group (The COTTAGe) provider has discussed a plan to ensure continuity of care and determine the best option for you and/or your child.  Our wish is for all of COTTAGe patients to feel supported during this time of transition.
