Insomnia is a common problem among combat Veterans who have suffered traumatic events and injuries. Effective treatments exist, but we do not know Veterans– preferences for the type of treatment and how and where to receive it. We asked 18 Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom Veterans and 19 healthcare providers to give us their views about insomnia treatment. The Veterans and providers found relaxation treatment most acceptable and preferred. Veterans also preferred medication, but not as a long-term treatment. The information provided will help to modify current insomnia treatments to meet the preferences and unique needs of returning Veterans.
