PCP Addiction Treatment


PCP (Phencyclidine), also known as Angel Dust, was developed as an intravenous anesthetic in the 1950s. Because it is so addictive, and due to its dangerous side effects – including hallucinogens, paranoia, violent hostility, and more – it was discontinued for medical use. Unfortunately, PCP is widely used for recreational purposes. In 2014 there were 24,000 people between the ages of 18 and 25 who tried PCP for the first time, an 85% increase from 2013.

Am I Addicted to PCP?

PCP is a very dangerous drug. It is not only addictive, but the withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous. The withdrawal process should only be performed under the supervision of trained professionals. Some signs that you or a loved one may be struggling with a PCP addiction include:

  • Mood swings
  • Intense anger
  • Hallucinations / Delusions
  • Paranoia
  • Social withdrawal
  • Distant or estranged
  • Blank staring
  • Exaggerated movement
  • Stuttering
  • Muscle spasms

How The Raleigh House Can Help

The Raleigh House has a unique approach to PCP addiction treatment. We provide a comforting environment that encourages superior health and a positive future. Clients receive greater care with our high staff-to-client ratio and frequent therapy sessions. Clients are assigned a treatment team during the assessment process that consists of clinical, psychiatry and nursing staff. The team will offer support, reassurance and safety along the way.

 

What to Expect

Quitting the use of a substance will inevitably cause some ongoing effects or symptoms. It is normal to experience these for a short to extended period of time. Some clients may experience anxiety, memory problems, confusion, weight loss and suicidal thoughts. If you or a loved one begin experiencing these symptoms in treatment, your clinical team and the additional Raleigh House staff will be here to walk you through these symptoms to ensure you feel safe and comfortable at our treatment center.

Therapeutic Activities

You will begin the healing process by building a strong relationship with your clinical team. They will be there to support you every step of the way. Group and individual therapy sessions focus on understanding your symptoms and how to cope in a new and healthy way, while making behavioral changes. Groups are held daily and individual sessions are determined between the client and their primary therapist.

Nutrition & Exercise

PCP addiction can cause significant weight loss that may last over a year after use. The Raleigh House focuses strongly on proper nutrition to help new clients find a balance and regain their optimal health that PCP has damaged. Maintaining a healthy diet routine and taking supplements, vitamins and amino acids will help fulfill deficiencies and can also alleviate withdrawal symptoms.

Severe depression including suicidal thoughts are a high risk for individuals that abused PCP. According to the American Psychological Association, exercise seems not only important for treating depression, but also in preventing relapse. The Raleigh House offers a variety of different forms of exercise that our clients are encouraged to participate in.

Recreational & Leisure Activities

Recuperating from a life revolved around drugs can be a difficult adjustment. At The Raleigh House, we promote recreational activities and leisure as the starting point for creating a new life. Our clients will learn healthier methods for dealing with their emotions and challenges through these activities. They will get the chance to try new things and develop relationships with others that share similar interests. We offer a variety of options including sports, art and cultural events.
