Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

20/20 Anchor Elizabeth Vargas Goes To Rehab For Alcoholism

20/20 anchor Elizabeth Vargas checked herself into a rehabilitation center over the weekend to seek help with her alcohol dependency.

“While on vacation this weekend, I decided to return to a recovery center,” Vargas said in a statement to Us Weekly. “As so many other recovering alcoholics know, overcoming the disease can be a long and incredibly difficult process.”

The journalist recently spent time before in rehab this past November, saying in a statement that she “was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol” and thanked her family and her colleagues at ABC News for their support. She returned back to work in January 2014, being real about her struggles and her husband Marc Cohn‘s request for her to seek help.

“I feel I have let myself, my co-workers and most importantly my family down, and for that I am ashamed and sorry,” Elizabeth said in her statement this weekend. “I am committed to battling and addressing this debilitating disease and want to thank everyone who has offered their unwavering support during this trying time.”

ABC News believes that Elizabeth will return to the show, but acknowledges that her health is the main focus writing now. The network said in a statement, “Nothing is more important than Elizabeth’s health and well-being and we stand squarely behind her. Our thoughts are with Elizabeth and her family and we look forward to having her back at ABC News when she feels ready to return.”

Alcoholism truly is a disease, and I hope that Elizabeth is able to overcome it. It’s hard, but she’s strong and can do it. Best wishes to her on her journey.
