Ted Williams -- Back at Rehab, But Not IN Rehab

2/1/2011 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ted Williams returned to a rehab facility this weekend -- not to check himself back in, but to visit his girlfriend.

Ted Williams Rehab

As we first reported, Ted left the Origins Recovery Center in South Texas against doctor's orders last week.

Sources close to Williams tell TMZ he went to visit his girlfriend at the Safe Harbor facility in Costa Mesa, CA on Saturday. We're told Teddy rolled up with two bodyguards and only stayed about 30 minutes.

According to our sources, Ted told his girlfriend he'd like to get married when she gets out of rehab.

BODYGUARDS? If he doesn't get help, then he may as well have stayed on the street because that is where he is going to end up again.

How does a homeless guy from the Midwest end up with a girlfriend in California?

How about a bath, haircut and a dentist before marriage. This man needs help on a major scale. After the aforementioned, he should get some help with addiction.

I guess I am lost on why he's interesting at all.

He should take his bodyguard money and invest it in rehab. Maybe, he could check into the facility with his girlfriend.

We care about this crack head because why? He should pick up Lindsey Lowhore and go over to Charlie Sheen's house and all overdose and die together.

Why do people comment on a story that they obviously know nothing about. Just incredible. #4: His girlfriend is in CA because she was on Dr. Phil and went into a rehab there after the show. #9: He has already had a haircut, etc., and Dr. Phil offered to fix his teeth, but he walked out on the procedure. Know something about the subject or don't post. How ridiculous.

Shows of with 2 body guards?

I think his 5 minutes of fame is up.Looks like he's foolishly & quickly spending the money he duped the others out of.

When she gets out of the rehab,perhaps they can plan the wedding out at one of your nicer homeless shelters.

AWWW, I think that is sweet. You people who leave these negative comments are *******s. He has already said he's been clean for a while so he probably doesn't feel he needs an intense rehab treatment at the moment. Give him a few months before ripping him a new one, see how it goes. I am sure the sauce or rock will pull him back in, then you guys should attack. Anyone who ****s up this second chance deserves to be ridiculed, so hold your horses. He probably owes some one for some crack so he needs bodyguards to keep him safe or maybe he needs protection from his kids(the bitchy one who got him detained and smacked him, hot ghetto mess). Don't hate appreciate ;)

He left rehab because Dr. Phil had cameras there and he felt exploited. He left the dentist because the dr. told him the extensive surgery they wanted to do might cause his voice to change.

Just to clarify, he has not been clean for a while. Remember he went back to Ohio and got messed up. It takes a long while when you have twisted your brain for years to sober up. It was obvious that he was just giving Dr. Phil lip service. Any desperate alcoholic/addict would have walked out the door and got on that plane. He never had any intentions of cleaning up. He was found on the streets and placed into a job; not on his own doing. He liked the game of carrying his sign and getting money to support his habits and then sleeping in his tent; no boundaries, no structure, no one to answer to. This was fun and without some chaos in life, experiencing peace in life is boring. I think a small piece of him wishes that he could get clean, but in reality, he and his girlfriend have lived this life so long, they don't want to live any other way. They are in their confort zone. It is really too bad. If she could only get it, get help and get rid of him, but I don't know if this will even happen. She told Dr. Phil that she would return to the streets if that meant she would be with him again. Doesn't sound like a deperate plea for help!
