The Jesse Jackson Jr. camp Wednesday night released only the barest of details of the congressmanâ€™s purported illness.
â€œThe congressman is receiving intensive medical treatment at a residential treatment facility for a mood disorder,â€ says a statement attributed to Jacksonâ€™s doctor. â€œHe is responding positively to treatmentâ€¦â€
The congressmanâ€™s office quickly added, â€œThe rumors about him being treated for alcohol or substance abuse are not true.â€
But a family friend tells NBC News tonight that the congressmanâ€™s problems run much deeper. That he has severe clinical depression, a drinking problem or a problem with alcohol with treatment at a facility in Arizona.
Earlier Wednesday NBC News reported that missing Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. had been found.
Andrea Mitchell reported that sources told her the 2nd District Congressman reportedly has been In Arizona receiving treatment for alcoholism.
