Ted Williams to Enter Rehab for Drugs & Alcohol

1/12/2011 6:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "golden-voiced" homeless man Ted Williams is going into rehab for drugs and alcohol dependency.

Ted Williams Rehab

Williams made the decision during a taping for the "Dr. Phil Show" today -- two days after the LAPD detained him over a verbal altercation with his daughter at a Hollywood hotel.

According to a press release for the show, Ted "has been drinking daily, despite his adamant claims of sobriety."

No word on whether his new employers will stick with him.

Too many people interfering in Ted's business. He needs to get to himself for a while. Leave family and old friends alone and focus on new opportunities.

He said he was 2 years sober in the original footage but didn't specify what he was sober from.

It takes a lot of courage to admit when you need help. I commend him for heading to rehab.

How unfortunate. He has so much going for him I'd hate to see all that be taken away and he be back on the streets. This just goes to proves that you create your situations, situations don't create you.

It is good because it might save his life. There is more to life than fame and the influences you have surrounding you could just do him in. He needs to take care of that and I am sure the jobs will be there for him because his voice is good.
He survived the streets and if he can work on his addictions then good for him.
