A couple days after he was brought in to the police station, and just hours after the public watched him and his daughter spew allegations back and forth in separate interviews, Ted Williams has reportedly checked into rehab.
Few details are known at this time, Dr. Phil actually played a role in convincing the recently homeless man to check into a treatment facility.
"If Ted is ever going to get better, he's got to be honest with himself and admit he's addicted to drugs and alcohol,” says McGraw. "I've told him it's not going to be easy and it's going to take a lot of hard work. It might be a long journey for him, but this is a big step in the right direction."
Police were called to a Los Angeles hotel on Monday because Williams and his daughter got into a verbal confrontation. The later has since claimed her father drinks heavily every night.
Williams has owned up to a history of alcohol abuse and illegal activity. Such honesty has helped the nation rally behind this man with an incredible voice, but it's clear he still has a long way to go in his personal struggle.
