Insominia Clinic

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is an effective treatment that is highly recommended as a first-line treatment for insomnia by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and by the American College of Physicians. About Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia CBT-I is a short-term pyschotherapy for insomnia that is based on scientific knowledge about sleep. The goals of CBT-I are to help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and improve your quality of life as a result of better sleep at night. • The “cognitive” part of CBT-I focuses on your thoughts, feelings, and expectations about sleep and insomnia that may affect how well you sleep. • The “behavior” part of CBT-I helps you develop proven sleep habits, based on the science of sleep that will help you sleep better. Can I participate in CBT-I and take medication for sleep? If you are taking sleep medications but want to reduce or discon- tinue use, you should seek help from your prescribing provider. CBT-I treatment can begin while you are reducing your use of sleep medication. If you desire, we can communicate with your prescribing provider while you are in the process of discontinu- ing your medication use to optimize the benefits of CBT-I. While medications may be helpful in treating short-term insomnia, CBT-I has been shown to be more effective than medications in treating long-term insomnia.
