On March 5, 2013, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he determined that an individual’s DOE access authorization should be restored. The Individual had a history of two alcohol-related arrests and an alcohol-related incident at work. A DOE Psychologist found that the individual habitually used alcohol to excess. The Hearing Officer found that the Individual these security concerns at the hearing by presenting evidence that he had more than fully complied with the DOE Psychologist’s treatment recommendations and the compelling testimony of his treating counselor.
