Josh Duggar has entered rehab his parents Michelle and Bob Duggar, wrote on their website. “Yesterday Josh checked himself into a long-term treatment center. For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery.” This comes months after it was revealed he has touched his sister inappropriately as a teen and then just this month he was named in the Ashley Madison hack. He confessed to infidelity and a porn addiction.
They continued, “We pray that in this he comes to complete repentance and sincere change. In the meantime, we will be offering our love, care and devoted support to Anna and our grandchildren as she also receives counsel and help for her own heart and future. During this time we continue to look to God — He is our rock and comfort. We ask for your continued prayers for our entire family.”
The Duggars also wrote, “We are so thankful for the outpouring of love, care and prayers for our family during this most difficult situation with Josh. As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions. His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear.”
Josh and his wife Anna have four kids, Mackynzie, 5, Michael, 4, Marcus, 2, and Meredith, 1 month.
