Drug free solution for insomnia
  •  Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia
    (CBT-I). CBT-I is a non-pharmacological
    treatment for Insomnia. It involves making
    changes to the sleep wake schedule to impact the
    cycle of thoughts, behaviors, and emotions
    perpetuating insomnia. It is the National
    Institutes of Health Treatment Consensus
    recommended treatment for insomnia.
  • Short-term, CBT-I is as effective as taking sleep
    medications
  • Long-term, CBT-I is more effective than taking
    sleep medications
  • 70 to 80 of patients with insomnia see
    significant results from CBT-I with 4 to 6 hours
    of treatment

    individually tailored to your needs and
    preferences. While we work with you to find the
    best treatment, we emphasize a non-pharmacological
    approach. Chances are your physician has already
    prescribed a sleep medication.

    required different strategies to resolve. The
    treatment can incorporate structured and assisted
    reductions in medication. We work with your
    referring physician, or assist you in this
    process.
