Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series about people who suffer from compulsive hoarding and are undergoing an intervention really isn't intended for young kids. While it offers some limited educational information about the disorder and treatments, the extensive scenes of extreme filth and vermin-infested rooms are both sensational and disturbing. Some of the hoarders' personal stories -- including having their children taken from their home due to the clutter -- may also be difficult or frightening for some viewers.

Sexual Content
