Approximately 25% of people who struggle with sleep have chronic issues. Many turn to sleeping pills as a first line of defense – and they can be helpful coping with a very short term bout of insomnia. But research has shown us that sleeping pills are not the answer when it comes to chronic sleep issues. What sleeping pills can’t do is address the thoughts and behaviors that allow insomnia to flourish.
CBT-I addresses these thoughts and behaviors, as well as the sleep hygiene factors which promote restful sleep. CBT for Insomnia has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health as an effective and preferred method for treating insomnia.
The success of CBT for Insomnia has been well documented:
Seventy-five percent of insomnia sufferers experience significantly improved sleep with CBT-I.
Eighty-five to ninety percent of people using sleeping pills are able to eliminate them.
