What You Don’t Know About PCP Addiction

PCP Tablets

Phencyclidine, or PCP, is a synthetic drug developed in the 1950s for use as a surgical anesthetic. Its legitimate use was discontinued after a few years, but today PCP is produced illegally.

PCP interferes with the function of your brain and central nervous system and creates an “out of body” sensation and euphoria that leads to erratic and aggressive behaviors. After your body is addicted to PCP, you experience cravings and other consequences or drug-seeking behaviors.

You can stop the madness of addiction before PCP destroys your mind and your body. Call Recovery Connection at 866-812-8231 now and speak with an addiction specialist. Our staff understands your needs because many are recovering addicts. Help is here. Call now.

Safely Breaking Free from PCP

Getting the right treatment for PCP addiction is important because PCP can cause severe health and psychological issues.

If you stop using PCP, you will experience withdrawal symptoms that can be frightening. PCP withdrawal symptoms can occur within the first day of last use and can last for up to 3 months if you used it daily. Some of the withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Depression
  • Excessive sleepiness
  • Poor memory
  • Confused thoughts
  • Increased cravings
  • Anxiety
  • Violent behavior
  • Hallucinations
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Delusions

It is important that you go to detox for PCP withdrawal to help you cleanse you body of the drug. Receiving treatment for PCP addiction from an accredited drug treatment facility immediately after detox will help you learn to manage your cravings and prepare you for life free of drugs.
