Tiger Woods Is Heading Back To Rehab After Report Found These Drugs In His System
Former No. 1 ranked golfer Tiger Woods is heading back to rehab after being charged with a DUI last month in Jupiter, Florida. At the time of his DUI, Tiger Woods agreed to take a breathalyzer and there was no trace of alcohol found in his system. To quell the rumors, Tiger Woods released a statement that basically said it was an unexpected interaction between medical prescriptions that caused him to be so zonked out.
If you haven’t seen the dashcam video of Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest yet it is worth watching because it’s a lot worse than you’d ever expect. Tiger was so zonked out he thought that he was traveling from Los Angeles. The initial arrest report listed 4 medications, but one of the drugs found in Tiger’s system was NOT listed, and it’s interesting because it is also the drug that likely caused him to be so far gone.
We now know which medications Tiger Woods had taken prior to his DUI thanks to this report from the Associated Press. Before getting behind the wheel, Tiger Woods had mixed Vicodin and Xanax. Xanax was NOT listed on the arrest affidavit, and if you’ve ever taken or seen anyone on a strong Xanax prescription you know just how powerful this stuff can be. The FDA warns that mixing Xanax with opioids (Vicodin, which Tiger Woods also took), can cause ‘profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma, and death.’
It’s unclear if this latest revelation about mixing Xanax and opioids is what is causing Tiger Woods to return to rehab, but the NYPost and other outlets are reporting that Tiger’s on his way to a rehabilitation treatment center. The speculation is that Tiger needed to go to rehab in order to maintain joint custody of his two children with ex-wife Elin Nordegren. Tiger has reportedly reserved the entire inpatient unit for males at the Jupiter Medical Center, the nearest luxury rehab center to his home in Jupiter, Florida.
Again, if you haven’t seen the dashcam arrest footage it is worth watching to see just how powerful Xanax can be when mixed with opioids:
