Taking responsibility for her own actions, Elizabeth Vargas checked into rehab earlier this month and announced on Tuesday (November 19) that she has completed treatment for alcohol abuse.
Speaking directly to fans, the “20/20” co-anchor tweeted, “Hello everyone! I am home, and so grateful for all your support and well wishes. I am so much better and taking it one day at a time. :)”
Back on November 6, the 51-year-old journalist released a statement saying, “Like so many people, I am dealing with addiction. I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. And feel fortunate to have recognized it for the problem it was becoming.”
Already making progress, she continued, “I am in treatment and am so thankful for the love and support of my family, friends and colleagues at ABC News. Like so many others, I will deal with this challenge one day at a time. If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, Im grateful.
