(CNN) – Tiger Woods says he’s on the mend. 

The 14-time major champion said on Twitter on Monday that he has completed an "intensive" program to help manage his pain medication and sleep disorder. He said he's looking to doctors, families and friends to help him tackle the issue.

The announcement comes weeks after Woods said he was getting "professional help" after being arrested in Florida on suspicion of DUI.

He said the incident resulted from an "unexpected reaction" to pain medications, not alcohol use. He was released from jail hours later on his own recognizance with no bond.

Woods' first court appearance for the DUI charge is scheduled for next month.
