A little over two weeks ago, golf icon Tiger Woods's face was plastered all over the media sphere — and not for reasons he is typically used to.

In the early morning hours of May 29 in Jupiter, Florida, police took interest in Woods's vehicle after he was found asleep at the wheel.

Soon after confronting Woods, it became evident he was under the influence of some substance, which led to his arrest for a DUI.

Woods is not believed to have been drinking, but after failing a sobriety test, he did admit that he was taking several of prescription drugs such as Soloxex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx.

Woods initially stated that the condition he was found in that morning was due to a bizarre reaction caused by the combination of drugs.

Now, a report from Radar Online states that perhaps Woods's condition that evening was not a rarity, given that the golf star is going to rehab to help fight his addiction to prescription drugs.

A source reportedly told the site:

“Tiger visited the hospital with his children on June 2, then went alone two days later to complete paperwork and his assessment.”

According to the report, Woods will be renting out the entire male inpatient unit of the Jupiter Medical Center, which is near his home and where the arrest occurred.

A source from Radar Online also reports that Woods's ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, demands he receives help before their children are able to spend the night alone with him again:

“Elin wants Tiger to get professional help before the kids spend a single night alone with him again! God forbid they're in the car when he's drugged up!”

This will not be the first time Woods has been in rehab.

Big decision made. Find out tomorrow. -TW

Back in 2010, Woods sought help for an addiction to Vicodin and Ambien.

During his time in rehab, Woods was working on his addiction to sex as well, according to the New York Daily News.

Woods was initially put on prescription drugs to help with back pain.
