Are troubles completely behind Ted Williams?

The golden-voiced homeless man who instantly became a household name last month, spoke of redemption and coming back from his rocky past in an interview with CBS news Wednesday.

Ted Williams, whose sudden rise to fame led him to relapse into drinking, insisted he's starting a new chapter in his life and is focusing on helping those in need. He said his troubles, with drinking and family members, are "behind me."

A YouTube clip last month of Williams panhandling on the side of an Ohio highway became an Internet hit, logging more than 20 million views. Williams was soon taken out of Columbus and thrust into the spotlight with numerous interviews and job offers for voice overs, including a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He relapsed, rushed into rehab and left after two weeks of treatment.
