Treatment of Compulsive Hoarding

Compulsive hoarding, considered a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), includes symptoms of excessive acquisition (buying, acquiring free things), difficulty discarding, and excessive clutter. It is resistant to both pharmacological (serotonergic medications) and psychotherapeutic interventions (exposure and response prevention) that have been demonstrated effective for other symptoms of OCD.

from a NIMH abstract. I also offer the following:
an ABC-news story on Hoarding Therapy

SF Apartment magazine has an article on Confronting Compulsive Hoarding

there was a story on NPR’s Morning Edition, today, but I can’t find it online. Instead,
Aha! doesn’t show up in search, and not much text affiliated with it, but here is the audio for Task Force Targets Compulsive Hoarders

I offer this Dec. 2003 story, about a man who hoarded more than 1 million pennies.

articles on the Collyer Brothers. Roz Chast’s recent cartoon referencing same. more photos. somebody to make me get rid of more stuff.
