Rebuilding his image reportedly becomes the athlete’s motivation in entering the rehabilitation facility in Arizona.
After being hit with rumor that he had an affair with several women while married to Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods has reportedly entered a private, upscale rehabilitation facility in Arizona. According to X17online, a source told them that the golfer “has been there for a few days since his handlers forced him to enter the program. They feel that if he blames his cheating on addiction, the public will forgive him.”
“Tiger wants to get back on top,” the source further detailed on the reason why Woods agreed to enter the rehabilitation facility. “He agreed to put golfing on hold so he could show the world how badly he feels about what he’s done and to prove that he wants to correct the problems that led to his infidelity.”
Arizona has two high-profile rehabilitation centers, Cottonwood de Tuscon and The Meadows in Phoenix. The site reported Cottonwood’s program for sex addiction “centers on helping patients retrain the neural pathways that are activated by their sexual behavior,” while the Meadows focuses on treating alcohol and drug addiction along with compulsive behaviors such as eating, gambling, sex, love addiction/avoidance and co-dependence.
Though it is most likely that Woods joins a facility for sex addiction, there has been rumor that the athlete has problems with prescription drug abuse. Thus, X17online further suggested that he is possibly treated for multiple issues.
