Former England and Spurs star Paul Gascoigne says Arsenal and their manager Arsene Wenger supported the 47-year-old.
Gascoigne received £50,000 from the North London club for hospital treatment.
The former midfielder was sectioned under the Mental Health Act in October, but says he is doing better now.
"I rang up (Arsenal) physio Gary Lewin and told him I wasn't feeling great," Gascoigne told the Sun.
"He said to go to hospital as he feared it was pneumonia. Wenger then agreed to arrange £28,000 to pay for treatment. Arsenal also paid £22,000 when I had hip treatment."

Former England footballer Paul Gascoigne said he can overcome the demons which saw him admitted to hospital in a drink-fuelled stupor.
The 46-year-old, whose legacy on the pitch has been overshadowed by alcohol and drug attractions, was treated in a Dorset hospital when he suffered a relapse last week after spending the previous seven months clean.
He told the Sunday Mirror: "I know I can overcome this. I am an alcoholic so I am taking one day at a time, but I will get there."
The former Tottenham Hotspur player said he turned to drink after being served with an eviction notice on his flat in Sandbanks, Poole, and described his latest relapse as a "blip".
He told the newspaper: "Up until a few weeks ago, I was doing great. I have an illness and I had a bad moment. Now I want to make sure it doesn't happen again."
Former footballer and sports presenter Gary Lineker has said Paul Gascoigne has got to help himself recover from his alcohol problems.
Speaking at a TV conference in Edinburgh, he said: "I wish him well but ultimately it's got to come from Paul."
