The House of Agoraphobics | Episode 1


This is the first of two episodes of the program which was aired on Channel 4 back in 2006.

In The House of Agoraphobics, a team of therapists implements the unique, intensive 14-day experimental treatment plan pioneered on three patients suffering with Agoraphobia with Panic Disorder – a fear of being in situations where escaping would be difficult, including big open spaces, busy outdoor locations, streets, traffic, and aboard transport. 

This compelling and revelatory format follows the three patients as they leave their homes for a fortnight and move in together to undergo intense exposure and response therapy, in the hope of curing them of their debilitating conditions once and for all.
