Tiger Woods did an ‘intensive program’ for his medication struggles


Pro golfer Tiger Woods on Monday said he has finished a treatment program for his medication struggles.

“I recently completed an out of state private intensive program,” he said in a statement on Twitter.

“I will continue to tackle this going forward with my doctors, family and friends. I am so very thankful for all of the support I’ve received.”

Some Twitter users praised Woods for getting treatment after he was charged with driving under the influence in May.

Woods said last month that he was receiving “professional help” for managing his medications for dealing with back pain and a sleep disorder.

The athlete was charged with DUI around 2 a.m. the morning of May 29 after police in Jupiter, FL found him sleeping behind the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz.

Woods reportedly told officers that he had a reaction to several prescription drugs, including Vicodin and Xanax, after breath tests showed no alcohol in his system.

The golfer has 14 major championships, including four Masters Tournament wins, three U.S. Open victories and four Professional Golfing Association (PGA) championships.

The Associated Press reported last month that Woods’ arraignment on the DUI charge has been delayed until August.

Court documents filed in West Palm Beach, FLA showed the presiding judge cancelled the original July 5 hearing and reset it for Aug. 9 instead. No details were provided for the change.
