Does CBTI really work?

There’s no question that CBT-I is extremely effective. A 2015 review of over 20 different CBT-I trials found that on average across the studies, insomniacs who used CBT-I fell asleep faster by 20 minutes and spent 30 fewer minutes awake overall than those who didn’t. What makes CBT-I so uniquely effective, over sleeping pills and other remedies, is that it gets to the heart of the issues – the problematic attitudes and behaviors the patient has around sleep.
