PCP, which is the common term used for phencyclidine, is a very hazardous drug to abuse, as it can lead to many devastating outcomes. Also known as rocket fuel, angel dust, and wet, PCP impacts an individual’s judgment, causes aggressive behaviors to develop, promotes a false sense of invincibility, and eats away at one’s ability to tell the difference between reality and hallucinations/delusions. The abuse of this substance often causes individuals to partake in behaviors that are not only dangerous to them, but also dangerous to others as. Additionally, someone who continues to abuse PCP can experience extreme physical and psychological damage.
At Pocono Mountain Recovery Center in Henryville, Pennsylvania, we know just how destructive, damaging, and painful a PCP addiction can be, which is why we are committed to helping those who are addicted to this deadly substance end their abuse once and for all. Through our specialized programming, we can help individuals who abuse PCP obtain the skills they need to make their PCP addiction a thing of the past and focus on a healthy, happy, drug-free future.
How to Help a Loved One
Helping a loved one get treatment for PCP addiction
Realizing that a loved one is addicted to PCP can be completely jarring and unsettling. While it is normal to be concerned and fearful for your loved one, there are things that you can be doing to help promote treatment and a better lifestyle. Your role in your loved one’s life can be imperative if you consider the following:
- Educate yourself about the many signs and symptoms of PCP abuse. Learn how the abuse of this substance can impact your loved one’s mind and body. Also, learn about addiction as a disease. Doing so can help you better understand what your loved one is experiencing.
- Realize that an addiction to PCP can cause your loved one to engage in aggressive behaviors. Therefore, develop a plan to ensure the safety of yourself and your loved ones. Putting your own wellbeing at risk will do nothing to help you or your loved one.
- Gather a group of friends, family, and/or loved ones together to help your loved one. Doing so can help take the workload off of your plate and help involve others in this uphill journey.
- Look into rehab options and identify programs that can provide specific treatment for someone who is addicted to PCP.
- Speak with your loved one when he or she is not under the influence of PCP. Express your concerns, and be willing to listen, too. Never have this conversation alone, because, as previously stated, an individual addicted to PCP can be volatile.
- If your loved one refuses to get treatment, speak with professionals for more guidance. Do not hesitate to involve a professional interventionist if need be.
- When your loved one accepts treatment, offer the support that he or she will need regarding obstacles that might prevent him or her from following through with rehab. Help with things on the home front, such as offering childcare, grocery shopping, paying bills, etc.
Remember that the road to recovery is often bumpy and filled with twists and turns. While your loved one will achieve many successes, he or she will also experience setbacks. Provide your support at all times, continually encouraging him or her to keep going.
