Hoarding resources

Do you or someone you know have a hard time getting rid of things? Is it affecting daily life?

People with a hoarding disorder have a persistent difficulty in letting go of items or possessions, even ones that others regard as worthless. Saving these items may make them feel more safe or secure. However, it can also lead to unsafe living conditions. It may even affect their relationships or work.

If you suspect you or someone you know is dealing with hoarding, you don’t have to go it alone. There are resources and help available in Stark County. You can get help with diagnosis, treatment, counseling, and recovery. You can also get help for the home.

Contact one of the resources below for help with hoarding.
