Woods heading to rehab

TIGER Woods is going back into rehab as well as being faced with possibly losing joint custody of his two young kids after his DUI arrest, it has been claimed.

According to the report, Woods will be renting out the entire male inpatient unit of the Jupiter Medical Center, which is near his home and where the arrest occurred.

The tee ace, 41, was arrested in Jupiter on May 29 after being found dozing behind the wheel of his banged-up Mercedes-Benz.

He later admitted to police that he had taken anxiety medication Xanax earlier in the night and also was on the painkiller Vicodin.

After a second dust up with prescription drugs, speculation has run rampant that Woods could lose any partial custody of his two children.

WEEI reports Woods was previously treated for sex addiction in 2009 after being accused of multiple extramarital affairs. The officer said that he asked Woods if he took any medication and his response was Xanax.

Seven years prior, Woods went to rehab for addictions to Vicodin and Ambien.

This will not be the first time Woods has been in rehab.

"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved", he said in a statement. It was then that Woods said he had taken Xanax. "I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly". In an August 2016 advisory, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned of "serious risks and deaths" from combining benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, with opioid medicines, like Vicodin. At one point, he told police he thought he was in California. Woods has been experiencing quite a downward spiral lately, and we hope that he will be able to sort things out.
