Where is Josh Duggar? The troubled reality star checked into rehab on Aug. 25, according to a statement released by the Duggars. However, since then, Josh hasn’t been seen in any of the meetings, causing concern for his whereabouts.
Josh Duggar‘s, 27, life has been in a downward spiral ever since he confessed to molesting family members at a young age and then cheating on his wife Anna using the Ashley Madison website. Since then, his family revealed the troubled reality star checked into a Christian rehab facility on Aug. 25. However, Josh hasn’t reportedly showed up to any of the mandatory meetings or church services.
Eyewitnesses are claiming Josh hasn’t been showing up to the Reformers Unanimous facility in Rockford, Illinois, a facility he is believed to be a patient at, reports RadarOnline. An eyewitness told the online outlet on Aug. 28 that Josh was noticeably absent from the large group of students who arrived at the North Love Baptist Church, the facility’s affiliate, for a local chapter meeting. The mandatory meeting wasn’t the only thing Josh missed.
The former TLC reality star reportedly also missed both church services on Aug. 30. A churchgoer claims the father of four was not present for either church services. “Josh definitely wasn’t there,” an onlooker said. “It was very strange.” Reformers Unanimous require their patients to attend church services in the morning and in the evening.
Josh’s decision to go to rehab came after his recent cheating scandal. When Ashley Madison, a website created for married people to find others to have affairs with, was hacked, it was reported that the married man paid for not one, but two accounts on the website. After the cheating reports, Josh made a shocking admission on his family’s website, calling himself a hypocrite, revealing his addiction to pornography, and being unfaithful to his wife.
Josh’s Family Reveal The Reality Star Has Checked Into Rehab
“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. Yesterday Josh checked himself into a long-term treatment center. For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery. 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.”
