PSH-12-0090 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On December 6, 2012, a Hearing Officer determined that an individual should be granted a security clearance. In reaching this determination, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had successfully addressed the DOE’s security concerns regarding his alcohol consumption. Specifically, the Hearing Officer concluded that the individual’s eight months of abstinence and AA attendance, along with the strength of his motivation to stop drinking and his ability to socialize with drinkers without feeling an urge to drink himself, and other factors, were sufficient to demonstrate rehabilitation from Alcohol Abuse.
