People diagnosed with hoarding disorder have difficulty discarding unneeded possessions. As a result, the resulting clutter is a source of distress as well as a health and safety risk for themselves and others. People who have this disorder may also experience the following:
- Hoarders’ emotional connection to their possessions keep them from discarding, organizing, or making decisions about their belongings
- Interventions from family and friends result in little to no improvement, even after forced cleanings or similar actions
- Hoarding may cause distress or impairment at home or in other social settings including at work
