Ted Williams, not the baseball legend but the “homeless man” who was discovered and given another chance in life by the media, is going into drug/alcohol rehab, People magazine said yesterday.

In something of a 19th Century remake of Meet John Doe, military vet Williams got catapulted from his plunge to the streets by the Columbus Dispatch, introducing him to the world by way of the web where stardom quickly embraced and overtook him.

Williams made headlines again when L.A. cops detained him for something about yelling at his daughter.

Well, two days later Williams was on Dr.Phil‘s (McGraw) show where he confessed that he was still overwhelmed by the shadow of the bottle.

“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,” McGraw said.  “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.”

Apparently Mr. Williams was listening to the good doctor’s diagnosis, prognosis and therapy.
