What Is So Dangerous About PCP? Am I in Danger?

What happens to the human body under the influence of PCP? What could happen when taking PCP? Is PCP dangerous? Should I avoid PCP?

At Archstone Recovery Center, we get lots of questions about PCP. We’re here to help you learn about PCP and its effect on your body. PCP is a dissociative drug, with hallucinogenic and neurotoxic properties. People take PCP by smoking, inhaling, or eating. Street names for PCP include “embalming fluid” and “angel dust.” PCP induces numbness of the body and mind in human beings.

Even small doses can result in aggression, suicidal tendencies, paranoia, hallucinations, euphoria, and alterations in mood. Users of PCP are very unpredictable, with various users doing different things on the drug: becoming violent or animated, detaching themselves from reality, or responding to hallucinations or delusions. In one extreme case, rapper Big Lurch ate part of his roommate’s lung after taking PCP and becoming convinced that she was the devil. Because of its unpredictable nature, and its potential for violence and aggression, PCP is not something that should be experimented with.
