Tiger Woods says he completed program to help manage medications

After saying he was going to seek professional help in order to better manage his pain medications, Tiger Woods appears to have completed that process.

Woods posted a message on Twitter on Monday which seemed to be him following up on his previous announcement from June 19.

“I recently completed an out of state private intensive program,” Woods wrote. “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.”

The 14-time major winner was arrested for DUI in Florida on May 29. Woods told police he had taken prescription drugs, which included Vicodin and Xanax, before the arrest. Woods has had four back surgeries over the last three years.

“I’m currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder,” Woods wrote on June 19. “I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour.”

The 41-year-old’s arraignment for a DUI charge is scheduled for Aug. 9.
