Tiger Woods is receiving treatment at a sex rehabilitation clinic in Mississippi, Benoit Denizet-Lewis, author of a book titled "America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life" and himself a recovering sex addict, wrote on his personal blog Monday, citing an unnamed source.

Denizet-Lewis says he spent some time at Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services in Hattiesburg a few years ago while writing his book and that is where he says Woods is receiving treatment.

Last week, Radar Online and Jackson, Miss., television stations WJTV and WLBT reported through sources that Woods was at the Hattiesburg clinic.

Officials at the clinic have not confirmed that Woods is there, and ESPN independently has not been able to confirm that Woods is at the clinic.

Denizet-Lewis, who has written for the New York Times Magazine and other publications, writes that he spent some time at the clinic a few years ago while working on his book and writes that the programs at the clinic include group therapy sessions and family and couples therapy, so if Woods "and his wife, Elin, are serious about repairing the marriage, she will be spending some time in treatment with Tiger."


I wish him and his family good luck.
I heard that they thought a photo of him would be worth $500,000 at least no nurses or patients took his picture yet.

Tiger Woods a sexaholic and hospitalized
There was a good discussion tonight on Tiger Woods on the Lynn Doyle show and the topic of whether sex can become an unhealthy addiction.

Apparently Tiger is in a sex addiction recovery unit now.

One New Jersey Sexaholic and one Pennsylvania Sexaholic and a spouse were invited and interviewed on the Lynn Doyle show.... sounds like the beginning of a joke... a rabbi, priest and a duck walk into a bar :)

As we can imagine the disease of sex addiction is no joke. All three inviduals were shaded out to be anonymous at the level of TV per tradition 11, and they directed all inquiries to the central office (and website sa.org) per the Sexaholic Anonymous basic text of the White Book, which is available online.

The sanon.org website and toll free number were provided as well, so S-anon may get some inquiries as well.

So you may see the interviews the youtube links are provided below:

Note before viewing, there are some bikini photos of models including Tiger Woods wife, etc.
