Elizabeth Vargas has checked out of rehab after being treated for alcohol abuse.

"Hello everyone! I am home, and so grateful for all your support and well wishes," Vargas, 51, Tweeted on Tuesday. "I am so much better and taking it one day at a time. :)"

The co-anchor of ABC's 20/20 revealed that she was in treatment on Nov. 6, saying in a statement, "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."

"[I] am so thankful for the love and support of my family, friends and colleagues at ABC News," she continued. "Like so many others, I will deal with this challenge one day at a time. If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, I'm grateful."
