Gazza has been caught on camera shaky and drunk at a charity event in Northampton.
Due to the incident last week he has now been admitted to a treatment centre in the United States.
The alcoholic former Tottenham Hotspur, Lazio and Newcastle United star, 45, has "willingly" been admitted to the unnamed centre, his management company said.
In a statement, GamePlan Solutions said Gazza had been touched by the help and support shown by fans and figures within football over the past few days.
The statement read: "Alcoholic Paul Gascoigne has been experiencing a tough time of late.
"He has been asking for help and has willingly been admitted to a treatment centre in America.
"He has complex issues that are currently being dealt with by professionals."
