A self-help program delivered online can improve insomnia in adults

Sleep efficiency also significantly improved for the experimental group from pre- to post- assessment, with no change for the controls. The experimental group increased total sleep time by 80 minutes and the control group increased by nine minutes.

We believe these types of Web-based treatment programs have the potential to impact countless individuals around the world, said Dr. Ritterband. Specifically related to insomnia, the availability of non-pharmacological help is significantly lacking. The Internet has already become a critical source of health-care and medical information.
