Not everyone who wants to unclutter and organize her home can do so without the help of someone else. Thankfully, assistance and effective treatments are available for those who need it and their families:
- Often times, chronic disorganization and hoarding are a side effect or symptom of obsessive-compulsive disorder. For individuals who struggle with these specific effects or symptoms, The International OCD Foundation can be a fantastic resource for finding treatment.
- Sometimes chronic disorganization and hoarding exist as a stand-alone condition and not as a side effect or symptom of another issue. In these cases, The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies has many resources available for those in need.
- For others, chronic disorganization and hoarding are a side effect or symptom of severe anxiety. For individuals afflicted in this way,
The Anxiety Disorders Association of America is a terrific resource.
- Finally, to find a professional organizer with special training for working with hoarders, checkout the website for The National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization.
I hope that these resources are helpful if chronic disorganization or hoarding affect your family.
