How does it work?

The PartnerMD SleepWell program is based on CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Insomnia), which sleep experts at the 2005 National Institute of Health State of the Science Conference on Chronic Insomnia in Adults confirmed is the treatment of choice for insomnia. People who received CBT-I during clinical trials experienced:

  • Greater total sleep time
  • Less time to fall asleep
  • Fewer waking periods during the night
  • Reduced use of medications
  • Lasting benefits after the CBT-I program ended

You may suffer from insomnia if most nights you have problem falling asleep or staying asleep and experience negative consequences during the day as a result of poor sleep quality. Negative impacts to daily life include cognitive impairment, irritability, mood changes, drowsiness, and a chronic stress state. National statistics indicate that 33% of the population has insomnia nightly and 50% have insomnia at least a few nights per week.
