Can't sleep? Ready to increase relaxation and cure insomnia with sleep techniques developed at Harvard Medical School?

“cbtforinsomnia.com is the smartest, most rational tool for fighting insomnia. Dr. Gregg Jacobs will one day be recognized for all he has done for insomniacs.” New York Times, 10/22/12.

CBT-I (cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia) is the only scientifically proven non-drug insomnia treatment. CBT-I improves sleep in 70-80% of patients, is more effective than sleeping pills and reduces or eliminates sleeping pills in the vast majority of patients, and doubles the improvement rates of depression compared to antidepressant medication alone in depressed patients with insomnia.

  • Was developed from Dr. Jacobs's research that was funded by the National Institutes of Health, and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, demonstrating that a similar CBT-I program was more effective than Ambien. Learn more...
