RP-1400.8000-315Hoarding Counseling Programs Definition
Programs that provide individual and group counseling and other forms of treatment for individuals who compulsively acquire and are unable to discard and/or properly organize possessions (often items of little value to others such as old newspapers, containers, clothing that may someday be "useful") which clutter their homes, sometimes making them almost unlivable. Therapy generally focuses on understanding hoarding behavior, controlling the excessive urge to acquire possessions, having less difficulty discarding or letting go of the items they have accumulated, sorting and removing possessions, and developing problem solving and organizational skills to manage the items they have decided to retain.

YF-5000.3300-220Compulsive Hoarding Definition
A pattern of behavior that is characterized by the excessive collection of possessions (often items of little value to others such as old newspapers, containers and clothing that may someday be "useful") coupled with the inability to discard and/or properly organize them creating a messy, sometimes unsanitary environment that, in extreme cases, no longer functions as a viable living space. When these behaviors are combined with severe self-neglect and hostility to the outside world, Diogenes syndrome (also known as senile squalor syndrome) may be the proper diagnosis.
