Hoarding, gross filth cleanup and the removal of trash and debris from a hoarding site, typically involves cleaning the building or residence that a reasonable person would find uninhabitable. Often this is due to a combination of filth and debris from hoarding, fecal matter, excessive trash, expired food, odor, boxed items, mold, mildew, etc., these extreme situations often require the services of trained professionals. The task of cleaning an area of gross filth, often referred to as hoarding cleanup, can be challenging and often impossible for an individual untrained in decontamination and odor removal. Our technicians are trained in locating and safely eliminating mold, mildew, asbestos and fecal matter can contribute to serious illnesses if proper precautions are not taken while cleaning a gross filth or hoarding site.

Columbia Univ. Dept of Psychiatiry - Anxiety Disorder Clinic / OCD and Related Disorders

New York, NY 10322
Founded in 1982, the Anxiety Disorders Clinic was the first in the nation devoted to research and treatment of anxiety problems. Although the idea that anxiety could take the form of specific disorders had been increasingly recognized, little systematic information about these disorders was available at the time. The clinic has been a driving force behind the recent advances in the recognition, understanding, and/or treatment of anxiety disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder(link is external), panic disorder, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and others. Our counterpart Hispanic Clinic offers research treatment in Spanish and is a valuable asset in the community.
The OCD research program is dedicated to the mission of improving the lives of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders by conducting cutting edge research to transform how we understand and treat these disorders. For the patients of today, we examine how to combine and sequence current treatments to maximize outcome, and we explore novel treatments. For the patients of tomorrow, we collaborate with experts in neuroimaging, genetics, and basic science to examine what causes obsessions and compulsions.
