On October 25, 2013, a Hearing Officer determined that an individual’s security clearance should be restored. In reaching this determination, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had successfully addressed the DOE’s security concerns under criteria (h) and (j). Specifically, the Hearing Officer concluded that the individual had demonstrated rehabilitation from Alcohol Use Disorder NOS, and that she was no longer a user of alcohol habitually to excess. She did this by demonstrating eight and one-half months of responsible alcohol use and continuing professional counseling.
