Tiger Woods has said that he is getting "professional help" to help manage the medications he is taking for back pain and insomnia.
Woods was arrested for driving while intoxicated last month.
The golfer was found asleep at the wheel in Florida, but tested negative for alcohol.
He later released a statement saying he had experienced an unexpected reaction to prescription medicines.
"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 Twitter on Monday.
"I want to thank everyone for their amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour."
