One topic that comes up most frequently is How can I get someone to admit
he or she is a hoarder or is mentally ill? I think the reason for this is that they think this is the only road to change - because they are following an addictions model and the only one they know. However, Dr. Randy Frost tells us "Avoid labeling the problem, clients do not need to admit or declare that they have a problem, only that they are interested in change. Using the term hoarding is not required for motivation or success, although some may find it helpful to have a formal diagnosis if it enables them to realize that others suffer similarly. Use labels only when the patient indicates it is helpful." [from Compulsive Hoarding and Acquiring, therapist guide - useful book for coaches and helpers]
