Recognizing Hoarding as a Disorder

Researchers from Yale University School of Medicine define hoarding disorder (HD) as ‘the excessive acquisition of and inability to discard objects resulting in debilitating clutter.’ In the past, the condition has been associated with other mental illnesses, such as OCD and dementia — however, the recent study suggests that HD does not only serve as a symptom of the said problems but actually exists in its own right.

In terms of addressing the condition, the researchers stated that: “Because hoarding is a fairly recently recognized disorder, research in effective treatments is only starting to pick up. Some methods, though, have shown notable success, including medication and cognitive behavioral therapy.”

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!
