51st Annual New York Film Festival - "12 Years A Slave" - Arrivals

ABC’s 20/20 anchor Elizabeth Vargas is back in rehab after realizing she was once again too dependent on alcohol. Vargas decided to cut her vacation short and enter rehab saying, “While on vacation this weekend, I decided to return to a recovery center,” Vargas said in a statement. “As so many other recovering alcoholics know, overcoming the disease can be a long and incredibly difficult process. I feel I have let myself, my co-workers and most importantly my family down and for that I am ashamed and sorry.”

Vargas entered rehab the first time late last year after admitting her dependency on alcohol and admitted “was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol.” She returned to ABC in January after the stint. “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,” Vargas continued in her statement.
