What is hoarding and some of the risk factors associated?
Hoarding, also called compulsive hoarding and compulsive hoarding syndrome, may be a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Hoarding has been a hidden disorder for many years. Before the early 1990’s, there was little research on hoarding. Since then, however, interest has increased dramatically among research scientists and clinicians. Recent media coverage of hoarding and hoarder cleanup help has also increased awareness and interest among sufferers, family members, and human service personnel who often deal with the problem.
Hoarding is the excessive collection of items, along with the inability to discard them. This often creates such cramped living conditions that homes may be filled to capacity, with only narrow pathways winding through stacks of clutter. Some people also collect animals, keeping dozens sometimes hundreds of pets often in unsanitary conditions.
