Our expert says:
THere's not an obvious and simple link, but heroin addicts tend to live a bad life-style and can have a number of other problems concurrently, and there could be a risk of brain damage, for instance if an injection was impure ( as they often are ) or if she overdosed and suffered some brain damage, and so on. In Rehab they ought to be able to provide competent medical assessment and treatment. It's not quite clear when you say sober, whether she may have also abused alcohol. There is also a risk when stopping any sedative drug, including alcohol, of some epileptic type fits in the withdrawal period, which might not necessariyl lead to continuing problems with epilepsy. But 3 months after stopping drinking seems a bit late for an alcohol withdrawal fit. And one is assuming that she has remained totally clean from all substances while in rehab.
