Could a Non-Pharmacological Insomnia Treatment be Right for You?

A recent systematic review by the American College of Physicians recommended cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTi) as the optimal initial treatment for adults and children with chronic insomnia. In the short term, CBTi has been found to be as effective as the most commonly prescribed sleep medications, and it has been shown to be more effective than medication for long-term insomnia management.

TIRR Memorial Hermann’s CBTi Program consists of an initial assessment and five comprehensive treatment sessions developed to:

  • Educate patients on the function of sleep and increase understanding of insomnia
  • Empower patients for long-term self-management of their sleep
  • Provide skills training such as stimulus control and relaxation
  • Identify and manage dysfunctional thoughts, which perpetuate insomnia
  • Identify daytime strategies to improve nighttime difficulties contributing to insomnia

Our providers are also trained to evaluate and manage:

  • Difficulty adjusting to positive airway pressure (CPAP)
  • Chronic nightmares
  • Circadian rhythm sleep disorders
  • Interventions for adjustment to shift work
