Rodriguez has been open about his history of alcohol problems. In 2020, he checked into rehab facility at a difficult time. The COVID-19 pandemic was just beginning to make its presence felt as the world shut down for a period.

Ricardo Rodriguez completed that stint in rehab. A year later, he celebrated 365 days of sobriety. In a recent tweet, Ricardo revealed that he is once again seeking treatment to deal with his alcohol issue.
