1. Elizabeth Vargas Seeks Treatment for Alcoholism

20/20 co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas has returned to a rehab center to recover from her relapse into alcoholism. 

Vargas previously revealed her alcohol dependence in November 2013 when she entered a treatment facility. Alcoholism relapses are common; according to the National Institutes of Health, people in recovery go back to drinking at least once before they quit drinking for good. 

Vargas has re-committed to her recovery and will be in treatment for an indefinite period of time. “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,” she said in a statement. 

To learn more about the biology of alcoholism and why it’s difficult to stay sober, watch this video.
