Hoarding Disorder Support Group “Buried in Treasures”

What?

Buried in Treasures” is a facilitated, self-help, support group for people with Hoarding Disorder or hoarding tendencies to help them manage their hoarding behavior, learn skills to reduce their clutter, and most importantly, learn they are not alone. 

When?

Program Orientation and Registration:       Our first program ends June 30, 2015.  Our next program will begin January 2016.  We will post the orientation date once it is confirmed.

Location will be the Abrams Public Health Center, address below, from 4:30pm-5:30pm

Our support group meetings will be open only to those who are struggling with hoarding tendencies - newcomers are always welcome.
