Elizabeth Vargas in Rehab

elizabeth vargas admits to alcoholism and relapses for second time

Elizabeth Vargas Relapse and Second Treatment

Elizabeth Vargas’ famous quotes on her alcoholism: “I am. I am an alcoholic. It took me a long time to admit that to myself. It took me a long time to admit it to my family, but I am.”“I feel I have let myself, my co-workers and most importantly my family down and for that I am ashamed and sorry.”

Elizabeth Vargas checked into rehab for the second time on August 18, 2014, although it is currently not clear which one. She left after just eight days and according to a source, has entered outpatient treatment. According to Daily Mail, she was seen at a Los Angeles airport looking content and relaxed. Meanwhile, she and her husband, Mark Cohn are in the process of a divorce partially due to an affair that Cohn reportedly had with a mutual friend, Ruth Zuckerman while Vargas was in inpatient rehab. Cohn reportedly suffered a shot to the head above his right temple in 2005 during an attempted carjacking in Denver, Colorado. As a result, trying to cope with Vargas’ struggle with alcohol addiction was probably extra difficult for him.

The story of what triggered Vargas’ relapse into dependency on alcohol is currently unclear and so is her motivation for going back into rehab. Although major big clue we have is the second quote mentioned above. It’s pretty safe to say that her relapse probably is currently too shameful for her to discuss, plus one can see why she would have the hesitancies while she’s still in treatment due to the confidentiality issues. Vargas has been perhaps one of the bravest celebrities who has come forward with her struggles. As a result, she has the support of her work colleagues and also the general public.

The decision on the part of a celebrity going public with their struggles with addictions is about as personal as that of someone who is homosexual deciding to reveal their sexual orientation. It’s something that can never nor should ever be forced and so whenever someone does decide to do that, it should first trigger gratitude for the courage to taking that step. Though Vargas has taken it a step further than most and even admitted that it was very difficult for her to not reach for the bottle. She has and continues to be an example for other celebrities and the general public alike.
