Tiger Woods completes 'private, intensive' treatment program

Tiger Woods releases statement regarding prescription drug program

Tiger Woods released the following statement on Twitter.

Tiger Woods tweeted Monday he completed treatment in an "intensive program".

Tiger Woods' name has been brought up for the wrong reasons over the past handful of months, following a May 29 arrest in Jupiter, Fla., for driving under the influence. He blew a.000 on the breathalyzer and attributed the arrest to a bad reaction to medication.

In April, Woods underwent a spinal fusion procedure, his fourth back surgery in three years.

This isn't the first rehab stint for the 41-year-old; he also reportedly checked into a facility in Arizona in 2010 for an addiction to painkiller Vicodin and sedative Ambien, according to the New York Post's Page Six. I am so very thankful for all the support I've received."Woods was unable to attend last week's Quicken Loans National, hosted by his foundation".




"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions", he said after the arrest.

Tiger Woods says he has finished a treatment program to help him deal with medications he was taking for back and sleep difficulties. He was seen on police dashcam footage speaking incoherently and failing field sobriety tests. "I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved".

He has not taken part competitively since pulling out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February after one round because of back pain.

Late previous year, Woods tried to make a comeback, but he last played in two events in January and February.

The American has not won a tournament since 2013, while his title drought in major championships dates back to 2008.
