To the Duggars, Christmas is the most magical time of the year.

But this December 25, the conservative Christian clan's oldest son, Josh, 27, will be hundreds of miles away from his family and friends in a Bible-based rehab center.

While Michelle, Jim Bob and the rest of their supersize brood carol and feast in their Arkansas estate, the disgraced father of four will be subjected to his Rockford, Illinois treatment facility's strict rules, RadarOnline.com can reveal.

"The holidays are a very busy time, with lots of activities," a Reformers' Unanimous insider told Radar, adding that patients will be ordered to attend a Christmas Eve church service.

On Christmas Day, staffers will prepare a special meal, but residents will still have to attend mandatory recovery meetings.

"Every Friday, they have to attend a meeting, and Christmas will be no exception," the insider claimed.

As Radar has reported, patients are required to attend a local chapter of Reformers Unanimous several times a week in order to pray their sins away.

But it seems that no amount of prayer will change former 19 Kids And Counting fans' minds about Josh, who confessed to cheating on his wife, Anna, 28, and harboring a secret sex addiction after news site Gawker reported he was a secret member of affair-seeking website Ashley Madison in August.

And, of course, an uncovered police report revealed that Josh was accused of sexually molesting five minor females, including at least two of his own sisters, as a teenager.

It doesn't seem like his family has forgiven and forgotten Josh's bad behavior, either. Though the source tells Radar that loved ones are allowed to visit qualified patients during the holidays, the Duggars have not revealed plans to fly out of state for a Christmas reunion.

The former "family values" activist is expected to complete his program in late February, six months after first entering treatment.
