Co-anchor of ABC’s ’20/20′ Elizabeth Vargas has checked into rehab for alcoholism. The 51-year old confirmed that she sought help a few weeks ago.

In a press release, Vargas said that she hopes going public with the news will help others have the courage to deal with addiction.

“I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. 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 a day at a time. If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, I’m grateful.”

ABC’s Senior VP of Communications Jeff Schneider praised Vargas’ work, and offered the network’s support.

“We look forward to having her back home at ABC News where she has done so much distinguished work over the years. Elizabeth is a member of our family and we will support her in every way we can.”
