Ted Williams: Rehab Decision Was 'Rushed'
Ted Williams re-surfaces again less than a month after he was gone from the public's eyes to get sober. The man who went from homeless to world's sensation when his golden voice video was uploaded to YouTube, appeared on "Today" Wednesday, February 9 morning to talk about the sudden rush of fame and what followed.
Williams said his decision to check in to a rehab of Dr. Phil's choice was "rushed", which was why he left before the program was completed. "It was too much, too fast, and I was just not really focused on what I should be doing," he said, adding "I love Dr. Phil, his concern and his caring. But I felt scripted. I was doing live phone-ins from rehab."
In order to get clean from alcohol and drugs, the internet sensation is now living in a clean-living sober house in Los Angeles. The facility allows him to come and go as he pleases but he must submit samples for testing at the end of the day.
Williams' goal now is to continue a charitable organization he has set up in Colombus, Ohio. He said his troubles, with drinking and family members, are "behind" him. The job offers that poured in before his troubles are also coming back. "Some of these offers have come back to the table under the provision that I do continue to live in a sober environment," he continued.
