Can an adult recover from sleep deprivation?

Yes. Just get as much sleep as you need. Your body will fully recover once you have got the right amount of sleep (particularly REM sleep). I suggest you have a weekend where you plan nothing but to sleep as much as you need. I know this sounds a bit ridiculous and too easy to be solving sleep deprivation, but I have studied sleep patterns and disturbances and this is the answer. If this doesn't help which it should, I suggest you see a doctor or find out the underlying problem of your sleep deprivation.
