What is hoarding?

Hoarding is characterized as a psychological need to keep and store an excessive amount items or belongings because discarding it is too painful, or because of a  pre-conceived notion that it will be necessary in the future.  

Some individuals with hoarding disorder may recognize and acknowledge that they have a problem with accumulating possessions; others may not see a problem.  In addition to difficulty discarding, excessive saving and clutter, many people with hoarding disorder also have associated problems such as indecisiveness, perfectionism, procrastination, disorganization and distractibility. These associated features can contribute greatly to their problems functioning and overall severity.  This is why it is important to identify the symptoms and formulate a plan of action.

  • Trouble discarding or recycling, selling or giving away items that most people would get rid of?
  • Is it difficult to use the rooms and surfaces in your or their home?
  • Buying things or getting free things that are not necessary or have the space for?
  • Is Hoarding affecting your or their daily life?
