Josh Duggar: Out of Rehab! Hiding in Arkansas!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

After weeks of rumors that Josh Duggar had secretly left rehab and was hiding out at the so-called "Duggar compound" in Tontitiown, Arkansas, Entertainment Tonight is confirming today that the troubled 28-year-old has indeed returned home after six months of treatment.

It's not known exactly when Josh arrived back in his hometown, but several sources confirm that the disgraced former reality star has been back for "at least a few days."

His whereabouts have not been visually verified, but the insiders believe he is staying at the sprawling estate built by his parents, as it's hard to believe he could escape notice anywhere else in tiny Tontitown.

Josh checked into the Reformers Unanimous Center in rural Illinois back in August of last year after a data breach revealed that he had two accounts with Ashley Madison - an online service designed for married people who wish to cheat on their spouses.

That revelation came on the heels of news that Josh had molested five young girls  - four of whom were his sisters - back when he was a teen.

According to those familiar with the facility where Josh was staying, it more closely resembles a "Christian work camp" than a traditional treatment center. 

Needless to say, we imagine he's happy to be home, but some of his siblings are probably less than thrilled, as the timing couldn't be much worse.

The Duggars are set to return to television next week, with a full season of Jill & Jessa: Counting On premiering on TLC March 15.

While the show will reportedly address Josh's sex scandals, it's also part of the Duggars' attempt to rebuild their image and move on from the controversies that shattered their reputation.

Not a great time to reintroduce Josh to the public.
