Drug-free treatment called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, or CBT-I, is getting a seal of approval from the medical community, reports the New York Post.

“Medications are a Band-Aid, whereas CBT-I tries to teach people what sleep really is, [and] what are the things that prevent us from sleeping,” Dr. Jeremy Weingarten, director of the Center for Sleep Disorders at New York Methodist Hospital, tells The Post. It’s then on the patient to carry out the changes CBT-I suggests, which can include creating a technology-free resting space and getting out of bed after 20 minutes if you’ve yet to enter dreamland.
