Hoarders and Hoarding

STATE OF AFFAIRS 01/31/11:  For most of us, what we know about hoarders comes from reality television and the news. We’re morbidly fascinated by stories of people "buried alive" in their homes or who are found to be living with 100 cats. But for hoarders and their families, there’s nothing entertaining about it. Hoarders come from all walks of life and it often starts gradually and then eventually spirals out of control. Join us on Monday when we learn more about hoarders and how to help someone suffering from the condition.
