Doug:

I have had a fair amount of personal experience with OCD over the years, but I'm a little confused by your post. Do you have a fear of contamination by contact with illicit drugs or a fear of ingesting illicit drugs? If it's the former, I don't see what eating off the floor is going to do for you (other than possibly get you sick, though the chance of that is small). If it's the latter, then I can understand the theory behind the therapy, though I wonder at its execution. I would think that the anxiety caused by the phobia would have to be pretty extreme and interfering with daily life activities before a therapist would ask someone to eat food off a floor.
