WASHINGTON (AP) - A statement from Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.'s office says the Chicago Democrat is receiving "intensive medical treatment" for a "mood disorder."
The statement Wednesday gives no details about his location and comes a month after Jackson went on medical leave.
The statement says Jackson is at a residential treatment facility and is responding positively to treatment. It says he's expected to make a full recovery.
Staff members say the statement is from Jackson's physician but the doctor's name and location won't be released due to federal privacy laws.
Jackson went on leave June 10, and his office initially said he was being treated exhaustion. But staff said last week that his condition was worse than previously thought and required inpatient treatment. They also disclosed Jackson has been battling emotional problems.
