Taking to Twitter Monday evening, the 41-year-old posted a statement saying that he will continue his recovery with the help of doctors and those closest to him.

"I recently completed an out of state private intensive program," Woods said in the tweet. "I will continue to tackle this going forward with my doctors, family and friends. I am so very thankful for all of the support I’ve received."

Woods was busted on Memorial Day in Jupiter, Fla., after cops found him asleep at the wheel of his car. He was seen on police dashcam footage speaking incoherently and failing field sobriety tests.

He was found to be under the haze of meds he had taken for his injured back and sleep trouble after a breathalyzer test found he had not consumed alcohol.

Woods told officers he had taken two painkillers, Vicodin and Turix, and possibly an anti-depressant.

"I understand the severity of what I did and take full responsibility for my actions," Woods said in a statement following his release from jail. "I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved.

"What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly."
