It depends on a lot of variables. That's a pretty over-generalized one-liner with plenty of unique situations to disprove it. When I got out of the military, my right leg was really messed up and I was undergoing treatment and was also hospitalized for a couple weeks. Does that mean that I regressed back into childhood? No, it doesn't. It means that I had just separated from the military, was injured, and needed to stay with my family for a while, no more, no less. There's nothing wrong, or childish/immature/slacker-like with that. In many cases, depending on the circumstances, it's indicative of someone being MORE of an adult (and more courageous) than most.
I had a similar experience, and had it not been for very extenuating circumstances, I would not have moved back with them, but sometimes life throws curve balls and you have no other option.
It wasn't good for my mental health, put it that way.
