Study Tests Drug-Free Treatment for Insomnia

A new study has found success with an alternative non-drug form of treatment for individuals who suffer from insomnia, according to a report from CBS News. Individuals who participated in cognitive behavior therapy–a treatment designed to improve one’s thought patterns and situational responses–fell asleep twenty minutes earlier and gained an additional thirty minutes of sleep on average. Given the side effects and the frequency of dependence on traditional sleeping medications, this therapy offers a significant alternative for adults with serious sleep issues who likely also suffer from related complications like anxiety or depression.
