Are you lying awake at night?  Sleep medications can be an effective short-term treatment, but to actually change the underlying cause of insomnia "cognitive behavioral therapy" has proven to be a better treatment choice for some people.

Winneshiek Medical Center Decorah Clinic will offer a six-week session starting January 19th for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) in group sessions.  The weekly sessions teach relaxation techniques, changes in lifestyle habits and strategies to change sleep thoughts and behaviors.

Anyone interested in the new cognitive behavioral therapy group for insomnia should call Decorah Clinic at (563) 382-2911.
