U.S. newswoman Elizabeth Vargas has entered a rehab facility to battle alcoholism.

The former “World News Tonight” presenter-turned “20/20″ co-anchor checked into treatment at the end of last month, according to the New York Daily News.

A statement from the revered TV personality reads: “I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. And I feel fortunate to have recognized it for the problem it was becoming… Like so many others, I will deal with this challenge one day at a time.”

Vargas, who is married to singer/songwriter Marc Cohn, will return to Friday night news show “20/20″ when she has completed her time in rehab.
