Cognitive-behavioral Therapy May Help Hoarders

Hoarders are individuals who have a great of deal of difficulty getting rid of their possessions even though these items may be of little value. And because of such behavior, clutter tends to accumulate, leaving very little space for the home to function in a normal manner. Unfortunately, treating hoarding disorder is quite difficult since patients don’t respond to medications.

A recent article accounted the success rate of using cognitive-behavior therapy in treating hoarding disorder. In a study that included 232 people diagnosed as being hoarders, between 25% and 43% of those receiving cognitive-behavioral therapy had shown significant clinical improvement. Among others, the individual’s ability to be able to discard their possessions was the biggest improvement.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
