Ted Williams, the 53-year-old former homeless man with the golden voice, is heading to rehab after having a one-on-one with Dr. Phil, the psychologist said in a statement.
"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," the statement said.

Williams taped segments with his family members that will air Wednesday and Thursday. During the discussion, he admitted to drinking — an addiction he suffered in the past. The Brooklyn native began drinking and using drugs in 1996 and as a result, he lost his radio job and his home. Earlier this week, he said he's been sober for two years.
On Monday, Williams and his daughter were briefly held by police after they responded to a disturbance report at a Los Angeles hotel. No charges were filed.
