  • NEW YORK (AP) — ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas is in treatment for alcohol dependency.

    Vargas and the network confirmed Wednesday a New York Daily News story about her treatment. Vargas, who is 51 and married to singer-songwriter Marc Cohn, is anchor of the newsmagazine “20/20″ and last appeared on the network in October.

    Vargas says she realized she was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. She says that if going public with her problem gives someone else the courage to seek help, she will be grateful.

    ABC says Vargas has been in treatment at a facility for a couple of weeks and has a few weeks more to go before coming home.

    One thought on “ABC Says Elizabeth Vargas is in Alcohol Rehab

    1. I applaud and appreciate Elizabeth Vargas for openly sharing her experience instead of allowing tabloids and such to leak stories and info about her. By her being such a public figure it helps to bring light the issue of Substance/ Alcohol Use Disorder and how it is affecting the lives of so many people–especially women! Gabrielle Glaser’s new book Her Best-Kept Secret, dives into the reasons why women are drinking more, when it’s becoming a problem and how to stop before it causes more harm than just a hangover. May we find Truth now as more open, honest discourse continues!
