Can the brain "go backward" in the healing process?


Building off this thread. Something I’ve noticed with my dad is that he came out of rehab, spent about a year doing really well (brain was sharp & “with it”) and now he seems to be confused, withdrawn, forgetful, acting really bizarrely, etc.

Wondering, is it possible for the brain to “go backward” in the healing process? Or might we be looking at something else?


I’m not sure about this one @katie I haven’t experienced this…hmmmm. Though honestly, I think it took 2 years clean(ish) for my husband to get majority of brain cells firing. 3 years now is way better still!
