As many as 50 to 70 million adults suffer sleep deprivation from chronic Insomnia which includes trouble falling asleep, staying asleep and/or waking up early for at least three nights per week and lasting over three months. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a non-drug, talk therapy that helps people alter behaviors and/or thoughts that interfere with their ability to get a good night’s sleep. Patients learn new habits that promote a healthier pattern of sleep. CBT-I has been shown to be an effective treatment for insomnia that produces lasting results with a brief number of sessions. It has been shown to produce greater effectiveness than medications for the treatment of insomnia six months or more after therapy is completed.
