ABC reporter Elizabeth Vargas is back in rehab for alcohol addiction, she and the network confirmed on Sunday.
In a statement, the 20/20 co-anchor revealed she entered a facility while on vacation. "As so many other recovering alcoholics know, overcoming the disease can be a long and incredibly difficult process," she said.
"I feel I have let myself, my co-workers and most importantly my family down and for that I am ashamed and sorry," the mom-of-two, with husband Marc Cohn, added.

ABC said in their own statement they stand "squarely behind her" during these recent troubles and "look forward to having [Elizabeth] back at ABC News when she feels ready to return."
The 51-year-old opened up about her struggle with alcoholism in January when she admitted to completing two rehab stints in November 2013. She is now apart of Alcoholics Anonymous.
In an interview with Good Morning America at the time of her revelation, Elizabeth confessed stress in her career and personal life led her to turn to alcohol.
"I dealt with that anxiety, and with the stress that the anxiety brought by starting to drink. And it slowly escalated and got worse and worse," she shared.
