Josh Duggar is out of rehab, but that doesn't mean life is any easier for him

Josh Duggar is out of rehab and starting to venture out to do normal life things again, but it isn't going particularly well.

According to In Touch Weekly, Duggar left the faith-based rehab facility where he spent the better part of a year two months ago. He's stayed far out of the public eye since then, until now — a local photographer spotted him out with some family and friends and convinced him to pose for a photo.

The photographer said he spotted Josh and his dad, Jim Bob, at Ripley's Old MacDonald's Farm Mini-Golf in Sevierville, Tennessee.

"They seemed a bit nervous [about the photo]," one eyewitness shared, "but they agreed."

But more eyewitnesses at the family-friendly mini golf course said things took a turn as more and more people started to recognize the Duggars.

"Three families with young girls were unhappy Josh was so close to them and left the golf course when they saw him and Jim Bob," one witness said. "The parents were not comfortable. The staff tried to be as polite as possible to the angry parents, but it seemed there was little they could do to stop Josh from being a customer."

The onlooker continued, "I don’t know if Josh and Jim Bob were aware of the problems their presence was causing at the mini golf course."

Their issue, of course, is Josh's admission that, as a teen, he molested a number of girls, including two of his sisters and one as young as 5 years old. That scandal broke nearly a year ago, months before it was revealed that Josh had also cheated on his wife. He entered rehab in August.
