Following his cheating scandal, Tiger Woods allegedly was treated for sex addiction. According to a January 2010 ABC News report, the National Enquirer claimed that he had checked into Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services, known for its sex rehabilitation services. But The Sun reported that he was at another sex addiction rehab the same month, the Montrose Place Luxury Addiction Treatment & Rehabilitation Center, located in Cape Town, South Africa (via Business Insider).

Woods has also struggled with substance use, an issue attributed to insomnia as well as the extensive injuries he experienced throughout his golfing career. They include stress fractures in his tibia, cartilage damage to his knee, “an inflamed facet joint in his neck,” pinched nerves, and more, as reported by NBC Golf. In a 2017 statement obtained by ESPN, Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, said, “Tiger has been dealing with so much pain physically. And that leads to insomnia and sleep issues. This has been going on for a long time.”

On May 29, 2017, Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Jupiter, Florida. Toxicology reports showed that the golfer had “Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Ambien and THC” in his system at the time of his arrest, per Golf Digest. Following his arrest, Woods sought treatment for his misuse of drugs and said in a statement, “Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance” (via CNN).

If you or anyone you know is struggling with addiction issues, help is available. Visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website or contact SAMHSA’s National Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
