         Before ALJ Joanne E. Dantonio:

         Date of Hearing: July 31, 2013; hearing transcript AR 43-111

         Date of Decision: July 14, 2014

         Appears in Record at: AR 18-42

         Summary of Decision:

The claimant has not engaged in substantial gainful activity since the amended alleged onset date. The claimant has the following severe impairments: cervical spine degenerative disc disease, status post C6-7 foraminotomy, discectomy, and fusion; bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome (“CTS”), status post releases; fibromyalgia; light shoulder strain, status post rotator cuff repair; bipolar disorder; anxiety disorder; panic disorder; history of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (“ADHD”); and poly-substance dependence/abuse. The claimant does not have an impairment or combination of impairments that meets or medically equals the severity of one of the listed impairments in 20 C.F.R. Part 404, Subpart P, Appendix 1.
Based on all of the claimant's impairments, including the substance use disorders, the claimant has a residual functional capacity (“RFC”) that precludes her from being capable of performing past relevant work or other jobs available in significant numbers in the national economy. However, if the claimant stopped the substance abuse, she would have the RFC to perform light work except that she can never climb ladders, ropes, or scaffolds, occasionally climb stairs, occasionally stoop, crouch, crawl, and kneel, and less than occasionally balance. She needs to sit/stand at will, i.e. sit/stand every 30 minutes, and take a 15-minute break every two hours and a 30-minute break after four hours. She can frequently handle and fmger. She needs to avoid concentrated exposure to extreme cold, vibration, and hazards. There should be no requirement to drive. Further, she can perform simple, repetitive tasks that do not require contact with the public or crowds.
If the claimant stopped the substance abuse, considering her age, education, work experience, and RFC, there would be a significant number of jobs in the national economy that she could perform. Therefore, the claimant has not been disabled at any time from the amended alleged onset date of February 18, 2012, through the date of the decision.
