BIT Peer-Support & Related Groups

The Chicagoland Hoarding Task Force is busy helping local partners set up and run Buried in Treasures Workshops (BIT) Peer-Support and Related Groups, which are facilitated and action-oriented self-help groups for individuals with clutter and hoarding difficulties. Research has started growing that shows BIT groups are a promising new method for helping people who struggle with saving and difficulty discarding stuff.
