From the Vancouver Sun:
VANCOUVER — After nearly two months of mostly-false speculation on his whereabouts, Tiger Woods' location has finally been confirmed, if you believe the photograph in the new issue of the National Enquirer.
The world's top golfer, who went into hiding after news of his marital infidelity became public in late November, has been photographed leaving a sex rehab clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
And Hollywoodlife.com is reporting that a source inside the "prison-like facility," the Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services Center, has revealed exclusive details about Woods' treatment for sex addiction.
The clinic features a sexual addiction program created by Dr. Patrick Carnes, who has pioneered treatment for sexually compulsive behavior, according to radaronline.com, which says multiple sources have confirmed Woods' treatment at the facility.
According to Hollywoodlife.com, "The Gentle Path center, surrounded by a fence which is locked at night and described by an inside source as a 'concrete prison,' is a no-frills far cry from Tiger’s usual luxury surroundings. Gentle Path is specifically for sex addiction patients and is about four miles from the main campus. Tiger’s daily routine will consist of group therapy sessions, doctor evaluations, and psychological analysis."
The typical length of a sex addict’s stay in rehab is approximately six weeks, the celebrity website reported. There are between 18-24 individuals enrolled in Gentle Path at any given time, and they attend Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings twice a week. They also have free supervised time get to go to Wal-Mart twice a week, the report says.
"Upon entering the facility one must sign a celibacy contracting banning them from sexual encounters with other individuals including masturbation.
"Our source says, 'Patients live in a refurbished motel once called the Alamo. There is a big fence around it … it sort of resembles a prison.' The huge fence is locked at night so if someone wanted to leave, our source says, 'they would have to climb the fence.'"
Woods has not been seen in public since crashing his vehicle into a tree shortly after Thanksgiving. In the following weeks, reports emerged that he had had affairs with as many as 14 women.
In the Enquirer photograph of Woods at the sex rehab clinic, he is wearing a hoodie and a baseball cap and his face his hard to see.
Reports say he checked into a six-week program at Pine Grove on Dec. 30.
The Enquirer report says Elin Nordegren threatened to take their children Sam Alexis, 2, and Charlie Axel, 11 months, to Sweden unless he “vowed to stop cheating and enter sex rehab.”
