Are you looking for an alternative treatment for your insomnia?
The purpose of this pilot study is to learn more about treatments for insomnia. Long-term use and dependence on controlled substance sleep medications (also known as “hypnotics”) is a common issue and is a less than ideal way to treat insomnia. Stopping the use of sleeping pills and trying other treatments for insomnia is difficult for many insomnia patients. Treatments combining supervised medication tapering (SMT), which is a gradual reduction of medication use, and cognitive behavioral insomnia therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which is a form of talk therapy that helps a person learn to better handle behaviors, habits and thoughts that lead to sleeping problems., help some who wish to stop using sleep aids, but many individuals who complete these treatments do not give up their sleep aids altogether. This project will look at how to best help insomnia patients transitioning from using sleep aids to other treatment options for their insomnia.
• Adults 21 years of age and older who have chronic insomnia • Current medication use for treatment of chronic insomnia (over one year) • Desire to stop medication use
