What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that makes it difficult to fall asleep or to stay asleep throughout the night.

Stress, schedule changes, and a distracting sleep environment can contribute to temporary insomnia. If you have chronic insomnia and experience difficulties going to sleep or staying asleep for three months or longer, it may be due to an underlying medical condition.

Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic insomnia in adults and children.

The providers offer sleep assessments and mental health evaluations to understand the root of your insomnia better. They design a care plan to improve your quality of sleep and enhance your overall well-being.

Why should I seek treatment for insomnia?

The sleep deprivation that insomnia triggers may lead to ongoing complications that affect your physical, emotional, and mental wellness. A lack of sleep can increase your risk for:

  • Obesity
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart attack
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

You may also be more susceptible to personal injuries from falls or car accidents that result from excessive daytime sleepiness. Additionally, a lack of sleep can interfere with your success at work, school, and social events.

Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services offers comprehensive sleep evaluations to learn more about your bedtime routine, sleep habits, diet, and lifestyle. The providers can also screen for depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders that can disrupt good quality sleep.

How is insomnia managed?

Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services offers several treatment strategies to address insomnia and its underlying cause.

Initially, the providers may recommend lifestyle and diet changes that can increase the frequency of insomnia. These changes might include:

  • Limiting caffeine
  • Avoiding long daytime naps
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Using stress reduction techniques

They can also help you establish a healthy bedtime routine and create an environment that promotes good-quality sleep.

If you have depression or another mental health condition that interferes with sleep, you might benefit from prescription medications. Therapy is also a useful tool for addressing insomnia and the mental health issues that contribute to the disorder.
