Did Josh Duggar get out of rehab to see his family for the holidays?

Multiple outlets are speculating that Josh Duggar may have left rehab after the family’s plane was spotted at an airport near the treatment center where he’s been staying.

Twenty-seven-year-old Duggar checked into the faith-based treatment center in Illinois after admitting to cheating on his wife and hiding an addiction to pornography. He’s been there since August, and the arrival of a Duggar Aviation plane to an airport in Rockford, Illinois, near the rehab facility, suggests that members of the family may have stopped in for a visit. But were they doing more than visiting? Were they there to take Duggar home?

A source close to the family reportedly told Hollywood Life that Duggar is not leaving rehab yet, but according to what another insider told Entertainment Tonight, that may not be accurate information, because even within the family, there's not a lot of shared information about the Duggars.

"Nobody communicates and it’s weird and tough," the source said. "I think they just don’t really trust a lot of people right now, so they want to keep things on a 'need-to-know' basis."

And if what that source says is true, it’s too soon for Duggar to be checking out of treatment — the insider said it’s doubtful that Duggar regrets any of the actions that landed him in treatment in the first place.

"It would be different if Josh was actually sorry… he hid it. When you live in a fishbowl, people are going to find out," the source reportedly said.

Even if Duggar isn’t leaving rehab, it’s good that his family is visiting. His wife, Anna, has stayed out of the spotlight, leaving no indication of whether Duggar will be welcomed back by her and their children once he finishes treatment.
