    It's colloquially called night terrors, alcohol may be messing with his brain, what you are experiencing is (it may be hard to believe) a fairly mild case neutral

    I think you will find your wrong about this, as having researched this and with working in this field I can assure you he is having withdrawal, as if he was to awaken and drink some alcohol he would sleep perfectly.
