Program Research Findings
Over 50% of adults now complain of difficulty sleeping, half of these chronically. We now know that sleeping pills are not the solution to insomnia and that it is possible to successfully treat insomnia using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health as an effective and preferred method for treating insomnia. Research on CBT shows the following:
75% of insomnia patients experience significantly improved sleep
The majority become normal sleepers
85- 90% reduce or eliminate sleeping pills
CBT is an effective treatment for chronic insomnia
CBT achieves these results because it is based on the idea that insomnia can only be treated effectively by addressing the underlying causes of insomnia—thoughts and behaviors—which are learned and can be unlearned.
Who Would Benefit
Individuals with problems falling asleep or waking during the night
Individuals who wish to reduce or eliminate sleep medications
