Compulsive hoarding is a disorder that involves the accumulation of belongings to such an extent that the resulting clutter renders parts of the living space unusable.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS/SYMPTOMS OF COMPULSIVE HOARDING?
- The acquisition and failure to discard a large number of items/possession that are considered by most to be of little or no value
- These possessions clutter the living space, rendering the space unable to be used in the manner in which it was intended
- The hoarding behavior causes marked distress or interferes with one’s daily functioning
NOT JUST MESSY
Clutter is a symptom, not the problem. People who hoard form powerful attachments to objects.
