PCP Detox Center in Louisiana

At Acadiana Treatment Center, our medically monitored detoxification program provides a safe and comfortable environment. Men and women rid their bodies of PCP, empowering themselves to achieve long-term recovery.

Importance of PCP Detoxification

Importance of Detox from PCP

Phencyclidine, also known as PCP, is a hallucinogen that was originally intended to be an anesthetic. Now banned as a prescription medication because of the fact that it causes intense dissociative effects and presently deemed an illicit substance in the United States, PCP remains a drug that is widely abused across the nation. When consumed, this substance causes feelings of emotional and physical detachment from one’s surroundings and triggers intense hallucinations that can cause a person to behave in a highly erratic manner. With its addictive properties and potent hallucinogenic effects, PCP is an extremely dangerous drug to become addicted to.

The longer an individual abuses PCP, the more likely it is that the person’s body will become tolerant and accustomed to the presence of it. As time goes on and as the abuse of this substance continues, being able to break free from this sort of addiction can be all but impossible to do on one’s own. The reason it may be exceptionally difficult for an individual to stop abusing PCP has to do with the uncomfortable and psychologically trying symptoms that emerge when a person attempts to reduce or stop his or her use of this drug. Symptoms of mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety, can manifest, intense confusion can occur, and other such effects can emerge when an addicted person no longer ingests this drug. For the aforementioned reasons, and more, proper and effective treatment should be sought once an individual has determined that he or she would like to become drug-free.

There are many different types of treatment options available to those who are looking to overcome a PCP addiction. And while many options for care can be helpful in treating some aspects of a person’s addiction, programs that offer detoxification services, or detox, have proven to be the most beneficial for someone with such a chemical dependency problem.

Benefits of Detox

Benefits of Detox from PCP

When in detox, harmful substances, like PCP and other drugs, are cleared from one’s system and enable an individual to experience a clear mind that is no longer influenced by drugs. And while this may seem like the only and most obvious benefit of receiving detox, there is much more that can be gained when one partakes in this service. Note the following:

  • Detox programs and most treatment centers, in general, do not allow substances of abuse on their grounds. Given this fact, a person who begins a program at a detox center will no longer be able to abuse PCP or other drugs.
  • In going through detox, as it has been stated, one can achieve a clear mind. With the ability to think in a more coherent manner, an individual can play an active role in uncovering and processing the other factors that may have contributed to his or her addiction in the first place.
  • Unlike when a person attempts to stop using PCP outside of treatment, those who engage in detox services have access to qualified and experienced staff members who are on-hand to offer ongoing support, encouragement, and guidance through this initial step in one’s recovery journey. By having ample support from those who are familiar with caring for individuals grappling with addictions, a person will be better prepared to continue on with his or her recovery and decrease his or her risk of relapse.
  • An individual’s vital signs and overall health are preserved in a detox program, as medical personnel, such as doctors, nurse practitioners, and/or nurses, are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to supervise the health and wellbeing of those who receive this type of care.

These benefits are but a few of those that may be experienced by people who engage in detox to begin working towards overcoming an addiction to PCP.

If you or your loved one would like to learn more about detox and how PCP addiction is treated within this level of care, do not hesitate to reach out to a program near you to gather more information about this invaluable form of substance abuse treatment.

Take a Free Online Assessment

An assessment is an important first step toward treatment of and recovery from addiction and co-occurring mental health issues.

I abused PCP for almost 2 years. I almost lost everything. In a last ditch effort to save myself, I asked for my family to help admit me to Acadiana's addiction program. They obliged and the rehab treatment was the first time in a long time that I could see clearly. I stayed the course, am now sober and stay active in their continuing care programs. Acadiana is a great facility and anyone considering getting help should take a serious look into their addiction program.
