Hoarding can be a symptom of an obsessive compulsive disorder, Dr. Shannon Scarry, director of Cape Cod Healthcare's Department of Behavioral and Mental Health Services, said yesterday.
"People who have OCD actually are aware that their obsessions and compulsions are irrational but they cannot help it," Scarry said.
The condition is often treatable with medication and therapy, Scarry said.

Family members and people close to a depressed person cannot be expected to act like trained observers, said Dr. Shannon Scarry, a psychiatrist at the behavioral health department at Cape Cod Hospital.
Knowing when someone needs intervention and predicting who will commit suicide is difficult even for mental health professionals, Scarry said.
Recognizing depression as an illness is also hard for many people because there is still an unfounded expectation that someone suffering with depression can simply snap out of it, she said."If someone's (clinically) depressed, they have an illness, and it's a very serious illness," said Scarry, who added depression can be treated effectively with medication and therapy.
Clinical depression has definite symptoms and is different from short-term situational depression, Scarry said.Symptoms include sleeping disorders, lethargy and inappropriate fits of guilt, she said.
People who are suffering from clinical depression experience low self-esteem and despair that appears to have no end, Scarry said.
"It's sort of built in to depression that they don't feel help will be helpful," she said.
Women are more likely to get depressed when they are younger and men are more prone to the illness as they age, according to Scarry.
"Culturally, it's a far more difficult thing for a male to say, 'I hurt, I need help,'" Scarry said.
