PCP Addiction Help & Treatment
PCP, also known as angel dust or whack, is a shortened form of phenylcyclohexylpiperidine (the formal name for the drug called phencyclidine). It is a white crystalline powder which can be mixed into a drink, taken as a tablet, smoked or snorted. It is commonly added to cannabis to enhance its effects – this is sometimes called supergrass or killer joint.
PCP is an exceptionally dangerous drug as it causes drastic alterations in the user’s perceptions of reality which can be very frightening as well as euphoric. It also gives a sense of detachment from the real world which is dangerous in itself. Effects can last anywhere from a few minutes to eight hours and despite the negative nature of them, PCP is extremely addictive.
Many PCP addicts begin to exhibit very serious schizophrenic style symptoms and long term use can leave addicts stuck in a kind of “living nightmare.” Other common side effects include loss of memory, suicidal tendencies and depression. Comas and death are not unheard of but it is more common for PCP addicts to die as a result of irrational actions taken during intoxication.
The most unsettling aspect of PCP use is that it can still cause intoxicating effects many years after a dose has been taken, due to the way the drug and its by-products are stored in fat and tissue within the body. Everyday stress or exercise in later life can cause a sudden relapse into a nightmarish PCP trip, normally when the person is least expecting it.
