Assess and treat: In many cases it can be treated or managed. First step - a medical consultation to rule out medical conditions, medication, etc. A psychological or psychiatric eval can determine if the insomnia is really part of a treatable psychiatric condition, and practicing good sleep hygiene / working with a psychologist can help. http://cpancf.com/articles_files/sleephygienehandout.asp.
