NEW YORK (AP) — Josh Duggar has entered rehab.

Days after he confessed to cheating on his wife and a pornography addiction, the ex-reality star checked into a long-term treatment center, his parents said Wednesday on the family's website.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar said they are "deeply grieved" by actions that have "brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear."

Last week, their 27-year-old son apologized online following reports he once belonged to the cheating website

His admission came weeks after he acknowledged molesting five underage girls as a teenager, including two of his sisters.

Those revelations led to the cancellation of "19 Kids and Counting," the TLC reality show on which he appeared with his 18 younger siblings and his parents in a portrait of wholesome family life.
