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.
Pictures of Josh Duggar sighted in Illinois have been released, while the Duggar family has refused to visit the disgraced Duggar since the family plane flew the eldest son to Rockford, Illinois, on August 24.
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.
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.
However, while there, they must obey the rules of the program, which severely restricts their behavior, phone calls, and visits.
Completion of the school’s program takes a minimum of six months, and the cost is ,500.
Pictures that appear to be of Josh Duggar were uploaded to the Reformers Unanimous Men’s School of Discipleship Facebook page on September 19.
The photos show the men’s group playing a softball game.
“We are so thankful for the outpouring of love, care and prayers for our family during this most difficult situation with Josh.
As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions.
His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others.
