ABC confirmed Wednesday that “20/20” anchor Elizabeth Vargas has checked into rehab, the AP reports. “Like so many people, I am dealing with addiction,” said Vargas, 51. “I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol.” She was last seen on the network last month; the New York Daily News reported that she has been in treatment for several weeks. “Elizabeth is a member of our family and we will support her in every way we can,” an ABC News rep said in a statement.
