After making his famous speech, Tiger Woods moved rehab facilities from the Gentle Path program in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he was receiving treatment for a sex addiction, to a rehab in Arizona. According to The National Enquirer, Tiger thinks the root of his problem isn’t an addiction to sex, although that’s definitely an issue, it’s his addiction to Vicodin and Ambien, which screwed up his decision-making ability.
Serial cheater Tiger Woods is hiding the shocking real reason that he’s returned to rehab – he’s a drug addict!
The 34-year-old golfer has checked into The Meadows treatment center in Wickenburg, Arizona, to battle addictions to two prescription medications, sources tell The ENQUIRER.
Tiger avoided admitting his drug habit during his 13-minute televised apology, and while he publicly declared that he is working on the damage done to his marriage, insiders say his wife Elin has flatly refused to participate in his sex addiction therapy and their marriage is over!
“In therapy, Tiger blamed a lot of his cheating behavior on his drug addiction, saying that the drugs were responsible for impairing his judgment,” a source familiar with the sports superstar’s treatment told The ENQUIRER.
The disgraced golfer entered The Meadows on the recommendation of therapists who treated him for sex addiction at the Gentle Path program in Hattiesburg, Miss., said the source.
“After he left Gentle Path, Tiger flew to Arizona for his initial intake interview at The Meadows, which is better equipped to handle rehab for drug addiction and depression.”

I believe this, because of the way he was passed out at the scene of the car accident and how he avoided denying being on prescription drugs. In his speech, he said he wasn’t on steroids but didn’t mention any other medication at all. The print edition of the National Enquirer has more, including the promising claim that Elin was disgusted that she was supposed to participate in a ‘disclosure’ session at Tiger’s first rehab in which he was to reveal details of his cheating. The Enquirer says Elin is not on board with therapy because she knows none of this is her fault. A source says, “It looks like it’s too late for Tiger to save his marriage.” What a shame.
[Elin] initially agreed to be part of [Tiger's] therapy, but when she agreed in Mississippi at Gentle Path, she discovered that she’d have to listen to a painful and intense ‘disclosure’ session.
“Patients write down every sexual encounter they’ve had in excruciating detail, and are given polygraph tests to make sure they’re telling the truth. Then they read their ‘disclosure’ in a group therapy session, while their spouse listens.
“Elin exploded when she found out she was expected to do this. She felt that she’d been manipulated, and said over and over again, ‘None of this is my fault, and there’s no way I’m going to put myself through this.’ Shortly after that, she flew back to Florida.
“Later, when therapists tried to set up conference-call therapy sessions with her, Tiger and a therapist, she flatly refused.
“Since then, Elin has turned her back on Tiger. In his apology, Tiger indicated that they were talking, but they lived apart in Florida before he headed to Arizona for rehab, and Elin doesn’t want to move on with the marriage.
“She’s decided that there’s no point being part of his therapy. Although she could always change her mind, it looks like it’s too late for Tiger to save his marriage. But he knows he has to complete therapy if he ever wants to get his life back in order.”

This report kind of goes counter to what we’ve heard about Elin so far. Other outlets have her as giving Tiger support behind-the-scenes and attending therapy. I believe the Enquirer above the other tabloids, though, and am hoping this version is true.
