Where can I get help for my hoarding?

I encourage you to search the

I encourage you to search the Yellow Pages or use the Internet to see if there is someone in your area who specializes in the treatment of OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). This may be a psychiatrist, psychologist, clinical social worker, or other type of therapist. You can start by looking under psychologists, psychiatrists, or mental health services.

Once you find someone (or a few people), I would make some calls. You may have to leave a message (if they are in session and don't have a receptionist) and have them call you back. Let them know specifically that you are seeking treatment for hoarding. When you talk to them, find out if they are experienced in helping people with this issue.

Depending on where you live (for example, a small town vs. a city), there may not be someone with that specialty. In that case, I would recommend setting up an appointment with a licensed mental health provider to start. If the person you see initially is not skilled in this area of treatment, ask him or her to give you a referral to someone who is.

If you have health insurance, you should contact them to obtain a list of mental health providers covered by your insurance plan.
