In brief: Absolutely

Melatonin or camomile tea can help.
A lavender sachet near the head of the bed can be soothing as well.

In brief: Yes

Yes, opioids disrupt sleep-wake cycle.
Usually it is temporary problem. Try solving it by simple recipes: no carbonated beverages or coffee, instead hot herbal tea with honey; hot shower or bath before going to bed; no tv in bedroom. If insomnia continues, melatonin or short-term administration of sleeping pill may help.
