There is need to investigate directly the generalizability of psychological treatment effects to clinical populations of insomniacs; especially to those who are chronic hypnotic users and are drug-dependent. This paper present two methodological models, based upon the pharmacological literature, which permit the selection of such subjects for research studies. The usefulness of the models is discussed with reference to a preliminary investigation based on 10 cases, and recommendations are made both for further research and clinical practice.
