Please join us for an inspiring event featuring Elizabeth Vargas, Anchor, A&E Investigates and Award-Winning Longtime Anchor, ABC News.
With her signature candor and insight, Elizabeth Vargas bravely discusses how alcoholism and an anxiety disorder have affected her life and career, and why she chose to publicly share her struggle with the disease and her ongoing recovery. Vargas’s memoir Between Breaths: A memoir of Panic and Addiction details her struggles with anxiety and alcohol, and tells a powerful story of healing and coping. A special episode of 20/20 aired in conjunction with the book’s release, in which Vargas and Diane Sawyer discussed Vargas’ experiences, reported on the link between anxiety and alcohol abuse, and interviewed both addiction experts and people recovering from addiction.
