In a surprise move, Josh Duggar has entered rehab today as a result of his recent sexual misconduct.
TMZ is reporting that Duggar is seeking treatment at an undisclosed location for issues remain unspecified, but are clearly tied to his recent scandals.
Generally, matters such as Josh’s indiscretions are dealt with "in house," or within the Duggars’ spiritual community.
When Josh received counseling from church elders after he molested five young girls in the early 2000s, this was infamously the case.
The fact that Josh is seeking a more conventional form of treatment is an indication of just how seriously his family is taking this latest scandal.
After admitting to cheating on his wife and suffering from an addiction to pornography, one can see why any parents would be concerned.
Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have issued an uncharacteristically critical statement to the press regarding teh decision:
"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."
The Duggars have revealed that Josh’s wife, Anna Duggar, is also seeking treatment "for her heart and future."
Michelle and Jim Bob add that they are praying Josh will prove capable of "sincere change."
Is Anna finally fed up? Are the Duggars hinting that she might finally divorce Josh? We’ll have updates as more information becomes available.
