Alcohol disturbs sleep and reduces deep sleep so that can be part of the problem. Depression also reduces deep sleep so, if it is not treated well, the sleep problems may continue. Nevertheless, you may also benefit from behavioral techniques for improving your sleep that are discussed in my blogs and on my website.
