Compulsive Hoarding Disorder Diagnosis Revised in DSM-5

The most recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) revision, DSM-5, has put the spotlight on some mental disorders such as compulsive hoarding. Some changes raise questions on the line between collecting and hoarding and when aggregating various stuff can actually be considered a mental illness.

It has been expressed that the American Psychiatric Association, the organization in-charge of updating the said manual, has made some drastic adjustments on what behaviors may be diagnosed as mentally deranged. In the latest version, hoarding disorder, which used to fall under OCD, has been given its own diagnosis as it’s been argued that, in the data available, the former isn’t shown as a symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

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!
