Hoarding is defined as the excessive collection of items, in addition to the inability to throw away possessions. According to the Mayo Clinic, the illness is also called compulsive hoarding and compulsive hoarding syndrome and may be a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder.
The illness is hardly uncommon – it is estimated that 1.2 million people in the United States suffer from compulsive hoarding. Thanks to recent media attention, a lot has been done to highlight hoarding as a serious issue, but it still faces a social stigma that makes treatment difficult – starting with hoarding cleanup and the removal of debris and biohazard material.
