The Toll Free Telephone Number For PCP Addiction Treatment Hotline is 866-653-3850. Phencyclidine is a dissociative drug commonly referred to as PCP. Abuse of this substance can quickly lead to addiction. Adverse behavioral patterns can emerge from PCP addiction that often lead to psychosis, hallucinations, and violent behavior. Also commonly referred to as Angel Dust, PCP is a recreational dissociative that causes vivid hallucinations. When taken in pill form, smoked, or injected, PCP has an action on the ionotropic glutamate receptors in the brain which can result in dependency quickly. Once PCP acts on the NMDA receptor it causes similar mechanism of action as other dissociative drugs such as ketamine, tileamine, dextrometorphan, and nitrous oxide, which all have a high potential for addiction. Over time PCP abuse can permanently harm the brain by causing decreased activity in the hippocampus and cerebellum. Permanent damage from dissociative drugs including PCP include memory loss. Avoid the physical harm of this substance by receiving detox treatment under medical supervision. Certain damage to the brain is found to be caused by NMDA receptor antagonists such as PCP, called Olney’s lesions. Phencyclidine is widely known to cause symptoms that mimic schizophrenia in individuals which result in strange behavior. You can avoid harm to yourself and others by seeking treatment immediately.
