Josh Duggar News: Abandoned In Illinois While Family Celebrates Jessa's New Baby?

Latest news about the "19 Kids and Counting" family claimed that the Duggars allegedly refuse to visit Josh Duggar at an addiction recovery facility in Rockford, Illinois.

The eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle's kids purportedly entered the facility on Aug. 25.

"The Duggar family airplane, piloted by second-eldest son John David Duggar, dropped Josh off in Rockford just after midnight in the wee hours of August 25, after a one-and-a-half-hour flight," Inquisitr wrote in a news report.

"Josh is currently living at Reformers Unanimous, a boarding facility mostly for drug addicts and alcoholics who wish to turn their lives around. There are no doctors there and no psychiatrists to give professional assistance."

According to the report, Reformers Unanimous may have a different approach to addiction recovery, compared to other rehab facilities.

"Boarders quit cold turkey, while donating 40 - 50 hours a week in unpaid, supervised work, in what the school labels a 'work therapy program.' In addition, every addict is required to participate in Bible studies for 34 hours each week. The school calls itself an 'addiction recovery program,' not a rehab," the news article said.

Amid Josh Duggar's stay at Reformers Unanimous, his younger sister Jessa has given birth to her and Ben Seewald's first baby.

Jessa, along with her sister Jill, admitted to being Josh Duggar's molestation victims more than a decade ago.

Daily Mail reported that Michelle Duggar reportedly called 911 because of Jessa's heavy bleeding after delivering her baby at home.

It didn't seem like there were any complications as Ben happily announced the arrival of their son in a blog post.

"Our sweet baby boy was born last night. He weighed 9 lbs and 11 ounces and is 21 1/4 inches long! He's precious and both he and Jessa are doing great. Stay tuned-we will share his name soon!" Jessa's husband wrote.
