Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia (CBT-I) is recommended as the gold standard by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and American College of Physicians. The AASM and ACP recommend first trying CBT-I before trying a sleep medication (don't worry, we can help you taper off your sleeping pill too).The CBT-I treatment includes 5-8 behavioral treatment sessions where you learn research-backed strategies for optimizing control over thoughts, behaviors and emotions to get the sleep you need. Data shows 70-80% of insomnia patients get results from this protocol. You will be keeping sleep logs in our digital platform, while attending telehealth sessions with leading clinical experts in the field.

What our colleagues are saying about Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia (CBT-I)

As an general internal medicine physician, I see many patients with insomnia. These patients range from healthy, young people whose sleep issues are their significant medical problem to older or chronically ill patients whose sleep disturbances worsen their underlying diseases, complicate disease management, and negatively affect their overall wellness.

Many of my patients have had great success using CBT-I. This treatment has been especially beneficial in people who have used sleep promoting medications for years and have been able to come off these medications with therapy.

Preliminary Clinical Outcomes from a Cohort of 75 Patients

49 Patients who Completed CBT-I

Total sleep time (TST) increased by 40 minutes from pretreatment (M=380 minutes, SD=87 minutes) to posttreatment (M=420 minutes, SD=81 minutes). This difference between pre-and-post- assessment TST was statistically significant (t(48) = -3.41, p < 0.001).

Sleep onset latency (SOL) decreased pretreatment (M=48 minutes, SD=43 minutes) to posttreatment (M=18 minutes, SD=18 minutes), which resulted in a significant difference between baseline and posttreatment (t(48) = 5.59, p < 0.001).

Wake after sleep onset [WASO] decreased from pretreatment (M=61 minutes, SD=44 minutes) to posttreatment (M=24 minutes, SD=23 minutes), a difference that was statistically significant (t(48) = 5.81, p < 0.001).

Sleep efficiency (SE) percent increased from baseline (M=72%, SD=16%) to posttreatment (M=87%, SD=8%). This increase in percent sleep efficiency was statistically significant (t(48) = -6.60, p <0.001).

26 Patients who Completed CBT-I alongside Sleep Medication Tapering

70% of sleep medication tapering patients were completely tapered off of their original dose

100% of patients were down to at least half of their original dose.

81% of patients were down to the last quarter of their original dose.
