Paul Gascoigne In Intensive Care After Detox


The former England star is rushed to hospital from a rehab
clinic in Arizona after problems during the detox process.



4:07pm UK, Sunday
10 February 2013

Paul Gascoigne has been treated at an addiction clinic in
Arizona














Former England football star Paul Gascoigne has been taken to
intensive care in the United States after his health declined.

The 45-year-old went to a clinic to help his battle against alcohol addiction
but was taken ill and needed hospital care.

Gascoigne's former Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Gary Mabbutt told Sky Sports
News he had a bad reaction to a detox treatment at a clinic in Arizona .

He has been admitted to hospital for observation, but the indications were he
was recovering and would soon be well enough to return to the clinic.

Mabbutt said: "Unfortunately over the last few weeks Paul has had a relapse,
which culminated finally, last Monday, in Paul asking for help.

"By Monday afternoon he was on a plane out to Arizona to a clinic
specialising in dealing with Paul's specific problems.

"The first thing he underwent was a detox, unfortunately Paul had a very bad
reaction to the detox and the clinic decided that as a precaution it was best to
transfer him to hospital.

"He was transferred to hospital in intensive care where they could monitor
him 24-7.

"But I spoke to Paul's medical team in the UK this morning, they had spoken
to Paul and he's recovering and hopefully soon he will be back into the clinic
to continue his rehab.

"Over the years he has had a lot of support from the football family, but of
course it could be a long road to recovery. Now Paul's asked for the help we can
focus on getting through this."

Gascoigne's former England and Tottenham team-mate Gary Lineker tweeted this
morning: "Gazza is struggling, Let's hope he can hang on in there. Others have
generously offered help. #GetwellGazza."

TalkSPORT presenter and former England cricketer Ronnie Irani and Radio 2
presenter Chris Evans, a long-term friend of Gascoigne, organised his flight to
the centre in Phoenix.

The move came following a charity appearance in Northampton during which
Gascoigne appeared unwell and shaking.

He then broke down and sobbed on stage in front of a room full of fans.

Irani said last week: "I had a chat with Chris Evans and he just asked how we
could help him.

Gascoigne, who has spoken about alcoholism problems in the past, was
sectioned five years ago under the Mental Health Act.

I remember a documentary that his wife did on him, trying to find him.


It was very sad, for her and for his son and step children.


She located him in Spain, he was holed up and drunk and she pleaded with him to come home to be with the family, he told her to **** Off.


She had him living with her and the children and all she asked off him was to be sober and he couldn't even do that....he was abusive all the time even in front off the children and would disappear for days on end and she would locate him drunk somewhere BUT she bought him back regardless....in the end he just went out one day and she got fed up with trying to track him down....that was the end for her.


She tried her upmost to help him but he didn't want help.


His son said that his step children knew him and had spent more time with him than he did.


I try to feel sorry for him as he has an addiction but I fell more sorry for his son who has never known his father and who had the chance to be with his family but he chose drink instead.


Everybody had done everything for him but he just doesn't want any help..I'm afraid he will just end up like george best.....these people are beyond help because they don't want it, they just want to drink themselves to death.

Ever since he was seen on the Football pitch crying , Paul won the hearts of the People. If you really want to be cured of alcoholism you can , I know someone who was an alcoholic for 15 years and gave it up. Paul was lucky to be able to afford to go for rehab but never had the willpower to stop. It's always hard on the Families and in particular the Sone who never knew his Dad.

He also has mental health issues which are making his recovery more difficult.

I have a relative with the same combination of problems and there are times when I will admit to thinking that the rest of us would be better off without her.

I read an interview with Amy Winehouse's father and he said he had never thought that, he always had hope that she would recover.

I don't think that anyone makes a conscious decision to become an alcoholic - some people have addictive personalities and it is like being on a roller coaster which won't stop.

No , I don't think anyone makes a conscious decision, it is willpower and willpower alone which results in someone giving up drink. This Guy who gave up was telling me he was on his way to a rehab clinic, went into a supermarket on the way and bought a small bottle of Vodka, walked to the nearest Tube Station, into the Men's Toilets to drink it. He suddenly realised what he was doing, poured the Vodka down the toilet and there and then determined he would never have another drink.

Paul Gascoigne: I've Never Been As Bad As This


The alcoholic ex-England star says he is determined to beat
his addiction, as he enters isolation at a US rehab clinic.



8:19am UK, Sunday
03 March 2013

Paul Gascoigne was admitted to a rehab clinic in the
US












Paul Gascoigne says he is not ready to give up his fight against
alcohol addiction after his emergency admission to a US rehab clinic.

The Sunday Mirror reported that the former football star told his friend
Jimmy Gardner: "The drink nearly finished me off this time.

"I know I've never been as bad as this before. But I'm not ready to give up
the fight.

"I'm getting better now. I'm not there yet, but I'm getting there."

Friends of Gascoigne, 45, clubbed together to pay for his £6,000-a-week detox
treatment, after a relapse in January.

He was transferred to a hospital following a seizure, where he spoke to Mr
Gardner, 46, from his ward.

Mr Gardner told the Sunday Mirror: "Paul sounded frail and weak and
scared.

"But I could hear something else in his voice too. I could hear grit and
determination.

"No one knows Paul like I do and I can tell you, he's not for throwing in the
towel.

"I love him to his bones. I can't think about him not being here. He'll beat
the booze. He's done it before and he'll do it again."

He will now spend time in isolation in rehab, and has had his phone taken
away as part of his therapy

Former England football star Paul Gascoigne has told how he
thought he was about to die as doctors tied him to a bed to help him beat his
alcohol addiction.

The player, who has fought a lengthy battle against alcoholism, said that his
body went into seizure during a detoxification treatment at an American
clinic.

He said that doctors said it was the "worst detox" they had ever seen.

"Three doctors didnít think I would make it. It has got to inspire me to
never let this happen again.

"Iíve come through that - death. I was dead," Gascoigne told The Sun
newspaper.

He added: "I thought I was on my way out. I looked like a corpse. I was a
total wreck."
Gascoigne: once one of England's most
naturally gifted players
The 45-year-old said he was in a coma for three days and was admitted to
intensive care.

Gascoigne has returned to Britain after more than a month at the
rehabilitation clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.

His treatment was organised by TalkSPORT presenter and former England
cricketer Ronnie Irani and Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans, a long-term friend of
Gascoigne.

The move came following a charity appearance in Northampton during which the
star appeared unwell and shaking, before breaking down and sobbing on stage in
front of a room full of fans.

The world of football has shown its concern at the latest troubled period in
the life of Gascoigne, one of England's most naturally gifted players ever.

Gascoigne, who has spoken about alcoholism problems in the past, was
sectioned five years ago under the Mental Health Act.

Sadly, I don't think he's long for this world, Chrissie. The pictures today are the worst i've ever seen him look.

It's very, very sad. He has serious mental health problems, and as with Robin Williams, even the best care possible can't always help.

I feel so sorry for his family.

Feel sorry for his children.



His son doesn't even know him.



He has to want help himself and it appears he doesn't.


Some people don't seem to be able to cope with fame and money and he was one off them.


I can understand if something really bad happened to him when he was young but it seems that money went to his head and he had this misconceived idea that he was 'in control'.



You don't control drink...it controls you.

Some people just don't want to be helped, they actually like drinking.



And you can help a person that doesn't want to be helped.
