Alternative Treatment for Insomnia in Adults

Trial Objective

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. This project will look at how to best help insomnia patients transitioning from using sleep aids to other treatment options for their insomnia.


This trial is active and currently recruiting.
