"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."

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."
