Chronic Insomnia Treatment
Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep. The consequences of many restless nights without sleep add up, affecting your physical, emotional, and mental health. True Life Center’s chronic insomnia treatment program in San Diego could be the solution you’re looking for.
Do You Struggle With Chronic Insomnia?
People with insomnia rarely feel rested when they wake up. As a result, they can experience chronic exhaustion that impacts their health, relationships, work performance, and quality of life. Most people experiences sleep disturbances from time to time. Long-term insomnia, on the other hand, lasts a month or more and makes daily functioning a struggle. Insomnia may not be the only problem going on. In fact, insomnia is often caused (or worsened by) an underlying mental health condition or medical condition.
Chronic insomnia can be more of a problem than you realize. What may seem like a few nights of restless sleep can indicate a more serious issue. In fact, repeated bouts of insomnia can create many personal and professional difficulties. True Life Center’s chronic insomnia treatment program can help you deal with the many symptoms you may be experiencing. These include:
- Difficulty falling asleep at night
- Waking up during the night
- Waking up too early
- Not feeling well-rested after a night’s sleep
- Daytime tiredness or sleepiness
- Irritability, depression or anxiety
- Difficulty paying attention, focusing on tasks or remembering
- Increased errors or accidents
- Ongoing worries about sleep

Keep in mind that chronic insomnia can be the result of another underlying condition, or it can be a contributing factor to another severe mental health condition. Quality insomnia treatment must provide comprehensive resources to examine the role that lack of sleep plays in each patient’s mental health. Assessment at True Life Center includes an evaluation for further mental health counseling so we can provide effective healing solutions for mind, body, and spirit.
Insomnia Treatment and Addiction
Addiction is often a factor in insomnia treatment because those suffering from insomnia may use drugs or alcohol in order to sleep. While this may work at first, repeated use can have unforeseen consequences. Self-medication often spirals into abuse and addiction. To help their patients struggling with the loss of sleep, family doctors may prescribe sleeping pills or powerful benzodiazepines, both of which can be highly addictive. Common addiction treatment programs that intertwine with insomnia include:
- Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program
- Benzo Addiction Treatment Program
- Opiate Addiction Treatment Program
You may or may not need addiction treatment in order to treat your insomnia. At True Life Center, we conduct a thorough assessment of your needs in order to design your comprehensive treatment program. If you aren’t struggling with addiction or substance abuse, your treatment program will look different from someone who is. As always, True Life Center provides you with evidence-based treatment centered around your unique needs so that you can begin to heal more quickly.
