This is what happens when people are ignorant of the medical facts. Abuse can be physical or mental or both especially among children. Tiger was hospitalized to deal with a manic sexual behavior. The reason he was asleep in his car when his x took a bat to it was because he was already on medications to help him to deal with a sleep disorder.
Problem was that the disorder could have at it's root suppressed mental sexual trauma they suffered as children. In addition many childhood stars suffer from stress put upon them by parents who push the children to succeed at all cost.
In addition if a child at a early age is exposed lets say to a magazine like Soldiers of Fortune (pron version) that child will have horrific visual remembrances that will affect him/her through their lives. It could manifest itself in many sexually manic ways.
Chocaholic's syndrome must be admitted in order to succeed. Meds help in acute cases but eventually in order to be come into complete remission, the patient must in a sober way face his demons.
Then & only then can one go on to bigger and better things.
