Body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs) is a term that describes compulsive behaviors such as biting, picking or pulling on different parts of the body. People with body-focused repetitive behavior can cause long-term harm to their bodies. This condition can negatively impact someone’s work and home life.
People with this condition may abuse substances to manage their symptoms, which can make diagnosis and treatment complicated. If you or a loved one have body-focused repetitive behavior, you are not alone. Treatment is available.
Assessing Your Risk of Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors
Do you think you or your loved one could have body-focused repetitive behavior? You can take a self-assessment to begin to get some answers. A quiz is not an official diagnosis as only a medical professional can diagnose this condition. An assessment may help you evaluate your symptoms and determine if you should seek treatment.
