Some news that we know is very good news for Paul Gascoigne, was announced today.
Paul Gascoigne – needs help and he’s getting it
Paul Gascoigne has been confined to a clinic’s psychiatric unit for intensive treatment, and Paul has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
This decision, to us, seems a very good one, and has been taken for Paulâ€™s own safety, after a series of drunken displays in public.
It is now the work of the medical staff to treat Paulâ€™s severe depression and chronic dependence on alcohol.
But Paul has to do his part too, and he has to really want to finally recover and get better, which has not always been the case in the past.
But itâ€™s impossible to recover without significant help from others.
The good news is that there are now available, various methods and treatments which can work.
The move comes after his family and friends quite rightly (for Paulâ€™s sake) begged authorities to step in to help the 41-year-old former Newcastle player.
His sister, Anne Marie, 42, spoke out very well is support of her brother, and expressed the very real fear that Paul could die without intervention.
We applaud his sistersâ€™ action, which could very well save his life, and we are not over-reaching when we say that – because we think Paul is currently in such a dangerous state of mind.
Paul has recently been in recent bizarre incidents.
He was spotted in a drunken state in a restaurant in Jesmond, Newcastle, at the weekend and he had famously earlier collapsed at London’s St Pancreas Rail Station and was later taken to hospital by police after hammering on his former wife Sheryl’s door in Hemel Hempstead.
These are all cries for help from Paul, and weâ€™re very pleased that Paul is getting the help he needs. Like every human in this kind of trouble – he deserves to get help.
We are looking forward to Paul making a full and successful recovery.
