A statement released by the "Dr. Phil" show confirms that Williams has left the rehab which was being provided by the show

"Ted was given the chance to voluntarily enter a drug rehabilitation facility in order to help him in dealing with his dependency on drugs and alcohol. In that it is voluntary, the decision to remain in treatment is Ted's to make.

We certainly hope that he continues his commitment to sobriety, and we will continue to help and support him in any way that we can. We wish him well."

- Dr. Phil McGraw


TMZ.com reports that Williams left against medical advice, two weeks after checking in for drug and alcohol dependency.

Sources told the website that the Internet sensation left the Origins Recovery Center in South Texas on Monday and was on his way to the airport.

His girlfriend is currently in rehab at the Safe Harbor facility in Costa Mesa, Calif., according to the report.

Williams decided to enter a private rehabilitation facility following a one-on-one conversation with Dr. Phil.


  1. This guy is not ready for Rehab. He was on the street asking for a job. He was not asking for Rehab. So many people think that you have to be sober in order to do your job, that is not necessary true for all professions. This guy is a voice-over announcer, he could be "high" out of his mind and do what he does. So when he was asking for a job that is what he wanted a job; not Rehab. If a company would have just given him what he asked for, he would be working right now, and doing what he does. The media blew this so far out of "his" proportion, it's a no wonder why he is still drinking.

  2. He obviously cannot still expect to still get the job and the house promised.
