The '20/20' co-anchor writes in a Twitter post that she is out of rehab for alcohol abuse, saying, 'I am so much better and taking it one day at a time. :).'

ABC News reporter Elizabeth Vargas, who confirmed earlier this month that she checked herself into rehab for alcohol abuse, has completed her treatement. The "20/20" anchor took to Twitter to tell her followers that she is already at home.

"Hello everyone! I am home, and so grateful for all your support and well wishes. I am so much better and taking it one day at a time. :)," she tweeted on Tuesday, November 19. She was welcomed with warm words by her followers. "So happy to hear that. #staystrong," a Twitter user wrote. News anchor Michelle Tuzee added, "Welcome home, Elizabeth. Sending you positive thoughts!"

Earlier this month, fans noticed that Vargas was last seen on "20/20" in October. ABC later issued a statement, explaining that the 51-year-old reporter was seeking treatment for alcohol problems. "We are proud of the steps Elizabeth has taken and are pulling for her recovery. We look forward to having her back home at ABC News, where she has done so much distinguished work over the years. Elizabeth is a member of our family and we will support her in every way we can," a spokesperson said.

Vargas additionally released a statement on the rehab issue. "Like so many people, I am dealing with addiction. I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol. And feel fortunate to have recognized it for the problem it was becoming," she said, adding, "If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, I'm grateful."
