"He has acknowledged that he needs professional assistance to overcome his problem and will be getting help immediately.

"Ryan knows that conquering this disease now is a must for him to avoid making future poor decision, to be the best husband and father he can be, and if he wants to achieve his goal to return to dominance in the pool in his 5th Olympics in Tokyo in 2020."

Lochte was banned from swimming competitions until July 2019 after receiving an IV injection in May, which is banned under anti-doping rules.
