19 Kids and Counting was cancelled thanks to Josh Duggar, and now he has let his family down again. The eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children recently admitted to having an addiction to pornography and to cheating on his wife Anna Duggar. He didn't make these admissions, however, until the media caught wind of his two Ashley Madison accounts.

It was reported just a couple of days ago that the 19 Kids and Counting family announced via their website that Josh Duggar had entered a treatment facility. The New York Post reports that the center is for the treatment of all sorts of sins, and it's called Reformers Unanimous.

Reformers Unanimous is an all-male Christian treatment facility that deals will all different kind of sin. Does that mean that once again the former 19 Kids and Counting star won't get the kind of treatment he needs?

When Josh Duggar first confessed to Jim Bob Duggar that he had sexually molested four of his sisters and one non-relative underage girl, he was sent to do some kind of manual labor at a fellow Christian's farm.

“Our clients deal with sin, from spending too much money to drug addiction to pornography or gambling--[we] deal with every sort of sin and struggle,” explained Tony Richardson, who is the Reformers Unanimous director of development as well as a successful former client.

The intensive Bible-based program's aim is to bring the former 19 Kids and Counting star “back into living a victorious life.”

Once Josh Duggar has completed 60 days at Reformers Unanimous, wife Anna Duggar can visit him at the Rockford, Illinois facility.

Communication with the 19 Kids and Counting family is encouraged while Josh Duggar attends Reformers Unanimous, but that will likely be via writing letters. He is only allowed one monitored phone call per week for the first three months of treatment.

Does this sound like the kind of treatment that can help Josh Duggar fight his sex addiction? His behavior has already cost his family their 19 Kids and Counting reality show. How much more can he do to his parents, wife, siblings, and children?
