Josh Duggar leaves rehab: Will we see him on Jill & Jessa: Counting On?
Josh Duggar is reportedly out of rehab and headed home.
According to People, Duggar has completed his full tenure at a faith-based rehabilitation program in Rockford, Illinois.
The Duggars published a statement confirming the news on their website:
"Josh has completed his residential rehabilitation program. We are so thankful for everyone who worked with Josh in this program. It was a crucial first step in recovery and healing for Josh. Josh has now returned to Arkansas, where he will continue professional counseling and focus on rebuilding relationships with his family. We look to God for help and guidance and place all of our trust in Him. We are forever grateful for the love and prayers offered by so many and hope you will continue to pray in the days ahead."
Duggar checked into the facility in late August after a summer of scandals, including his confessions to a porn addiction and cheating on his wife, Anna, as well as accusations that he molested underage girls including four of his own sisters. TLC and Hulu both pulled 19 Kids and Counting shortly after news broke of the molestation accusations.
Sisters Jessa and Joy have shared coordinated statements about forgiving, but not trusting, Josh.
"I definitely have forgiven Josh. It is a process, though, that you have to work through in your heart. And trust is not quickly rebuilt. It is something that takes a while," Jessa said.
The Duggars' latest series Jill & Jessa: Counting On is currently filming, but there's no word yet on whether Josh will be allowed to return to the TLC spotlight. The new series premieres on TLC on March 15.
