Shocking allegations against Josh Duggar's rehab center revealed

Josh Duggar's rehab facility may actually be the opposite of what he needs

A new source is speaking out against Josh Duggar's rehab facility, and what he has to say is pretty messed up.

Duggar is currently seek help for his addiction to pornography and his cheating ways at a rehab center called Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois, which was founded by the North Love Baptist Church. And former North Love practitioner and speaker Dan Parsons spoke with Radar Online to detail the problems with the center.

Parsons explained that rather than getting help from educated psychotherapists, the center encourages those in recovery to consult the Bible.

But the fact that the institute doesn't even have a medical license, according to Parsons, is far from the only issue.

The rehab center also has strong ties to Basic Life Principles founder and Duggar family friend Bill Gothard, who was disgraced in 2014 because over 35 young women and teenagers came forward accusing him of sexual harassment.

Duggar himself admitted to sexually molesting five young girls, including his sisters, when he was a teenager.

"All staff members and deacons in [North Love] church were required to attend Bill Gothard's seminars," Parsons explained. "The church very much supported him."

And if they supported Gothard who, as an adult, harassed over 35 women, then it can only be assumed that they're also supporting Duggar.

Given these new details, Radar Online concludes that it is unlikely Duggar will actually get the help he desperately needs.

Parsons echoed those sentiments. "It's not even clear what Josh is doing there. It's really just another way for the church to make money."

The family has kept a very tight lid on exactly what Duggar is being treated for, but the rehab center is something the family said is a long-term solution. They don't expect an overnight fix for Duggar. It could be that North Love is just the first in many steps to get him help. At least, we hope that's the case if these new reports are true.

Do you think the church alone can help Josh Duggar get back on a good path, or does he need more professional help?
