Elizabeth Vargas announced today that she is back in rehab and "ashamed".

According to ABC News, 20/20's Elizabeth Vargas is back in a recovery center to be treated for alcohol dependency.

Elizabeth said in a statement, “As so many other recovering alcoholics know, overcoming the disease can be a long and incredibly difficult process,” Vargas said. “I feel I have let myself, my co-workers and most importantly my family down and for that I am ashamed and sorry.”

Vargas, who’s married to Marc Cohn and has two children with the singer-songwriter, said she was “committed to battling and addressing this debilitating disease” and expressed thanks for the support she has received.
