Shelley Webb, Nursing, answeredThere are basically 2 types of treatment for hoarding: psychotherapy and medication. Cognitive behavior therapy is the type of psychotherapy that is generally used to help hoarders so if you are looking for a therapist to help your loved one, look for one that practices this type of therapy. The classes of medications that are used to attempt to help hoarders are called SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) which are anti-depressants. There is not a guarantee that SSRIs work well though.
