Battle Back Beads provides FREE different color/design beads on a weekly basis to those fighting OCD and related disorders corresponding with what they have done to reach recovery that week. Every week, an envelope will arrive in the mail with the beads that have been earned the week before and can be added to the strand.
With the first beads, you will also receive a length of cord that is 2 ft long for the beads to go on. If one length becomes full, you can request a new length of cord with your next order of beads.
