rabbi twersky,md was a neighbor of our in monsey for several years and we davened in the same shuls.
i had heard the story of the recovering alcoholic priest and the rav’s solution. he confirmed the story.
by the may, rabbi dr twersky is a psychiatrist, not psychologist. his wife is a phd psychologist.
very interesting davar torah and historical note.

Fixed that, thanks.
Regarding Chol Hamoed I would venture that as the purpose is to engender simcha, it would require an alcoholic content.
