You get home after a long day, crawl into bed, exhausted. And wait to fall asleep. And wait. And wait. There’s just not much worse than tossing and turning, waiting for sleep, only to still be awake when the sun rises. Or, another version of insomnia involves bouts of falling asleep and waking back up again, which isn’t any more restful than simply not sleeping. All in all, whether it’s a chronic condition or intermittent, insomnia is miserable and impacts all aspects of your life, both physical and mental. At Arcara, we offer treatment for sleeping disorders.
After meeting with you to discuss your medical and personal history, we will approach your insomnia from several angles. Lifestyle plays a big part in regulating the condition. Diet, sleep hygiene, daily routine, levels of activity, etc., all affect how you sleep. We’ll provide you with concrete suggestions that you can implement in your life and then monitor your progress. Dietary supplements such as melatonin are sometimes also helpful. Finally, we may prescribe medication if it’s appropriate to your situation. Before doing so, we’ll discuss the risks and benefits with you. You will be fully involved in every aspect of your sleep disorder treatment—our job is to advise and support you through your recovery from insomnia. Don’t wait another day to get a good night’s sleep. Call us today! We have offices in Boston and Westborough, MA, and can help you cope with your insomnia.
We do not have a psychiatrist on-site or a crisis intervention team. Because of this, we are unable to provide care for patients requiring particular types of psychiatric care. We can provide referrals to Boston and surrounding area psychiatric clinics or larger psychiatry offices who offer a comprehensive team.
