The New York Yankees have stepped forward and offered to pay for drug treatment for Dwight Gooden.

Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry have been in the news quite a bit lately since the ESPN 30/30 documentary "Doc and Darryl" aired a few months ago spotlighting their careers and their well documented drug use.

This past week, Darryl Strawberry issued a statement saying that Dwight Gooden is a "junkie-addict", and that he has been trying to help him behind the scenes.
