Gore is making the rounds to promote his Live Earth concerts this weekend.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Vice President Al Gore said his son Albert III is now in "the right place," following Wednesday's arrest after Orange Country police found a variety of drugs in the younger Gore's car.
"We're very happy he's getting treatment and that nobody was hurt and he's in the right place and has asked for the right kind of treatment," Gore told CNN's John King on American Morning.
Gore refused to elaborate on the type of treatment his son was undergoing, saying, “We are treating it as a private family matter.”
The former vice president, on the air to promote his Live Earth concert series this weekend, also refused to say whether he was gravitating toward any of the Democratic presidential candidates, noting the election is "500 days away." But he added all the presidential candidates are treating the environment as a “side issue.”
