Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson and The Duggars Speak At CPAC
Josh Duggar is back after spending more than half a year in rehab to be treated for sex addiction.
Entertainment Tonight reported that the former star of 19 Kids & Counting “has been out for a few days,” and the family announced he is back home with family on March 10.

"Josh has completed his residential rehabilitation program," the statement read. "We are so thankful for everyone who worked with Josh in this program. It was a crucial first step in recovery and healing for Josh. Josh has now returned to Arkansas, where he will continue professional counseling and focus on rebuilding relationships with his family. We look to God for help and guidance and place all of our trust in Him. We are forever grateful for the love and prayers offered by so many and hope you will continue to pray in the days ahead."
Duggar spent the holiday season and his 28th birthday reportedly at Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois to treat his “addiction” after he was caught cheating on his wife Anna using website Ashley Madison as well as an alleged child sexual abuse case.

19 Kids & Counting was cancelled last year after it was revealed that Josh was involved in a molestation scandal when he was a teenager, sexually assaulting four of his sisters and a family friend.
The family, however, has moved on with another show, Counting On on TLC, and admitted to People magazine that they forgive their brother, but are still having trust issues. It is unclear if Josh will star on the show.
"I definitely have forgiven Josh. It is a process, though, that you have to work through in your heart," Jessa Duggar Seewald told People. "And trust is not quickly rebuilt. It is something that takes a while. We love him very much, though, and we are very hopeful for the future."
