Rafael Amaya put an end to the rumors regarding his alleged addictions in a revealing and emotional exclusive interview with People en Español magazine. In the conversation, the actor confessed that he lost his “inner peace” due to being immersed in alcohol and drugs.
“I lost my inner peace, the love I had for my family, for my work. Little by little I was immersing myself in the dark mud of alcohol and drugs, living all the excesses possible that have been and have been, ”Amaya assured in the conversation.
The interpreter also explained that he hit rock bottom with his addictions eight months ago, so he turned to his great friend Roberto Tapia, who did not hesitate for a second to give him his significant support so that he could overcome his addictions in the privacy of a rehabilitation center in Mexico.
When referring to the people who supported him in his healing process, Rafael Amaya described Roberto Tapia, Carlos Appel, Julio César Chávez and Karem Guedimin as “the angels” that surround him.
In her interview with People en Español, Amaya mentioned that “bad friendships and not having our feet on the ground” was what made him withdraw from his family and good friends because of his addictions.
Rafael Amaya had been away from public life since April 2018, the date on which he mysteriously stopped publishing content on digital platforms. From that moment, the media and some fans speculated about the actor’s possible addictions after concluding his successful participation in the Telemundo series “El Señor de los Cielos”. However, no theory was supported by evidence.

The Mexican actor announced that he was in rehabilitation for his addiction to drugs and alcohol for a period of four months at the Baja del Sol clinic in Culiacán, Sinaloa in Mexico, whose owner is Julio César Chávez. Likewise, Amaya mentioned that she is in the final process of her recovery and pointed out that it was her first time in a rehabilitation center.
“I have been four months in a clinic called Baja del Sol and they helped me. I was in rehab and I thank God, my work team, my family, all my brothers and cousins. To all the people who never took their finger off the line, even though I didn’t know they were watching me. They became my guardian angels while I was submerged and isolated ”, confessed the Mexican star.
For his part, Julio César Chávez admitted that Rafael Amaya entered the rehabilitation center believing that he was his fictional character in the Telemundo series “El Señor de los Cielos”: “When he arrived, we really didn’t want to tell Rafa, but yes he got a bit psychotic, still believing himself the lord of the skies. But the days have passed and now months, and Rafa’s evolution has been incredible ”.
“I keep going to meetings, but I am finishing my process. This is for life. It was a four month treatment and I am very grateful, happy. I have faith in my hands, I feel a peace of mind like I have never felt before and rehabilitation is for whoever it wants, “said Amaya to make it known that she is in the final phase of her rehabilitation process.
