Overview

In recent times, there has been an increased interest in obsessive compulsive behavior, specifically, compulsive hoarding or the uncontrollable acquisition of material possessions. It is estimated that about 3% of the total United States population are suffering from this condition.

Why should people care at all about hoarding behavior? From a very broad point of view, hoarding behavior produces two problems: danger to one’s physical and mental well-being, and danger to the community. The second problem brought about by the increased acquisition of material possessions is the compromised structural integrity of the hoarder’s home.
