Overcoming Insomnia

Welcome to CBT-I

CBT-I, or cognitive behavioral therapy program for insomnia, is the recommended treatment for chronic insomnia and involves changing sleep behaviors that are causing insomnia. CBT-I improves sleep in 75-80% of patients. It is also more effective than sleeping pills and helps 90% of patients reduce or eliminate sleeping pills. By improving sleep, CBT-I also improves depression and pain and other health problems in many patients. CBT-I is for individuals experiencing problems falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking too early in the morning and for individuals who are, and are not, taking sleeping pills.

CBT-I is available to patients in a free "light" version that consists of basic CBT-I tips and guidelines. It is best for individuals who experience sleep problems a few nights per week or less and are not taking sleep medication.
