Josh Duggar has returned home after spending six months in a rehab center for sex addiction.

The famed family of 19 Kids & Counting confirmed the news this morning, posting an official statement on Josh's release to their website.

"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," the family message continued. "We are forever grateful for the love and prayers offered by so many and hope you will continue to pray in the days ahead."

Just yesterday, sources told Entertainment Tonight that the star "has been out for a few days."

Josh celebrated the holidays, as well as his 28th birthday, at Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois after he was caught cheating on his wife Anna using website Ashley Madison.

It was also revealed earlier in 2015 that Josh's parents had covered up his teenage molestation scandal.

As Radar previously reported, the reality star was caught sexually assaulting four of his sisters and a family friend. Jill and Jessa Duggar later recalled their brother's abuse during a bombshell interview, revealing that they had since forgiven him for the attacks.

Meanwhile, the family's reality TV endeavors have continued in full force. The latest season of Jill & Jessa: Counting On airs on March 15 on TLC, and the rest of the Duggar family has been seen with film crews in recent weeks.

It remains unclear whether Josh will appear on air again.
