Don’t Let Insomnia Ruin Your Life
My name is Dr. Jeff Clark, and I’m the creator of Slumber Camp. Over the last few years, I’ve worked with dozens of people who suffer from insomnia.
Many tell me how they lie in bed for hours before finally falling asleep. Others drift off easily, but can’t get back to sleep after waking up during the night.
When the day rolls around, they all feel exhausted. Insomnia makes it hard to get work done, and almost everyone has angrily snapped at someone they love. They hope that the next night will be better, and sometimes it is. But far too often, they get stuck feeling both dead tired and wide awake.
If you’re in my office and you want to sleep, I can make you sleep. I’ve thought up medication cocktails that could knock out a charging rhino. But sleep medications have serious side effects. They might be fine to use intermittently under a doctor’s supervision, but far too many people believe that they cannot sleep well without medications.
There’s a better way, and it’s called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I).
CBT-I uses clinically proven behavioral principles to reverse the root causes of insomnia.
(And before you have to ask, CBT-I is not really about sleep hygiene—the long lists of tweaks that people say will improve your sleep. It’s an intensive, powerful program that will ask you to make dramatic, counterintuitive changes to your sleep patterns. Minor changes are simply not enough for people with insomnia!)
Unlike medications, CBT-I doesn’t wear off when your prescription runs out. A short course of treatment often leads to years of great sleep.
CBT-I is the real deal. Research has repeatedly shown it to be safer, longer-lasting, and at least as effective as any medication. In fact, current clinical guidelines strongly recommend that doctors prescribe CBT-I as the first-line treatment for insomnia.*
My mission is to provide scientifically-supported, self-guided CBT-I to everyone who needs it. That’s why I’ve created Slumber Camp. It’s a 28-day course designed to help you conquer insomnia.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be updating Slumber Camp with the feedback I received from early beta testers. I’ve had to pause sign-ups to make sure this transition goes smoothly, but I plan to relaunch Slumber Camp in August 2018. Please sign up below to be the first to know when Slumber Camp is ready again! I can’t wait to share it with you.

* The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has recommended CBT-I since 2006. In 2016, the American College of Physicians reviewed all the evidence and strongly recommended CBT-I as the first-line treatment for patients with insomnia.
