Two years after seeking treatment for his porn addiction, Josh Duggar reportedly paid his old rehab center a visit — and he wasn’t alone. The disgraced reality star secretly returned to the faith-based treatment facility, Reformers Unanimous, with his wife Anna, his parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, and brothers John-David, Josiah, and Justin.
“He visited the men’s home and the church where God changed his life,” an insider told Radar Online of the August 2017 visit. “It was a great reunion.” At the center, the family enjoyed music and the source revealed that Josh is still “the same guy.”
“It was great,” the source added. “In fact, Josh ordered pizza for everybody and it was a good time.” Viewers of 19 Kids and Counting will remember that in 2015 [In Touch] exclusively revealed that Josh had molested his sisters when he was a teenager — and the Duggars attempted to cover up the scandal. “James said that in March of 2002 [redacted, Josh] who had just turned 14, came to him very upset and crying,” a court document read. “James said that [redacted, Josh] had told him that he had been sneaking into [redacted, his sisters’] room at night and had been touching [redacted, his sisters] on the breasts and vaginal areas while they were sleeping.”
Josh was later caught up in the Ashley Madison scandal — and admitted to his sex addiction. “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife,” he said in a statement. “I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.”
However, his wife Anna has remained by his side — and the couple welcomed their fifth child shortly after this secret rehab visit. “Anna will not leave him. As with her in-laws, she is turning more to her faith than ever,” a source told People at the time. “She is fully and permanently committed to her marriage and children. She will have the support of Jim Bob and Michelle and everyone else in their circle in terms of staying with him and making this work. Divorce is not even something that will be discussed.”
