Tiger Woods

Where’s Tiger been hiding all this time? It’s unclear where he’s been hiding all this time, but right now, he’s apparently holed up in a sex addiction rehab clinic.

It all started on Black Friday, and most likely you already know the sordid details. He crashed his SUV that day, in the early morning hours; it appears Elin Nordegren Woods was chasing him that day, after an argument over numerous affairs, and since them so many mistresses have come out of the woodwork that it’s hard to keep track of them.

In addition, Tiger’s lost some big sponsors, such as Accenture and AT&T. Others, such as Gillette, have simply put him on the back burner, most likely hoping his advertising “glamour” will come back.

Sources say that Tiger Woods is now at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services, a clinic in Mississippi. According to the facility’s web site, their sex addiction program is known as the “Gentle Path.”

It’s described as follows:

The Gentle Path Program offers gender specific treatment to aid men and women in regaining their freedom from the disease of sexual addiction. Most patients are simultaneously treated for mood disturbance, anxiety or other addictions, such as chemical dependency. The Gentle Path Program has a special focus on working through past trauma and family problems. The program is designed to help men and women regain freedom from compulsive behaviors and develop a sense of healthy sexuality. […]

To get the results our patients need for long term recovery, Gentle Path provides comprehensive treatment services based on a 12-Step Program. Our interdisciplinary staff of physicians, nurses, counselors, clinical assistants, social workers and a certified addictionologists, provide patients with a full continuum of care. The Day Treatment Program includes:
