No Drugs. More Sleep.
CBT-I makes it possible.
You can get back to normal sleep patterns without the use of sleep medications. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a non-drug approach that addresses the root cause of insomnia. CBT-I may be for you if lack of sleep is negatively impacting your life or if you're worried about becoming dependent on sleep medication.
The drugs used to promote sleep are effective in the short term but they lose effectiveness over time, making it necessary to change medications or take a higher dose to get to sleep. Medications prescribed for insomnia weren't created for long term use, and there are often side effects that outweigh the benefits.
CBT-I is a long-term insomnia solution without any of the costs or risks associated with sleep medication. CBT-I works better than sleeping pills and eliminates the problem. Sleep medication only works when you take it, and when you don't, insomnia returns; medication is not a cure but a temporary solution that loses effectiveness over time.
The CBT-I program we use is based on decades of research and clinical practice at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Medical School involving over 10,000 patients. It consistently shows that after participating in the CBT-I program, 90% of patients reduced or eliminated the need for sleeping pills.
CBT-I has been recommended as the preferred treatment for chronic insomnia by the New England Journal of Medicine and the Lancet and by the National Institutes of Health, Consumer Reports and the American Psychological Association.
