Abstract

Phencyclidine (PCP), the potent psychotomimetic drug, is an illicit street drug which is used widely among youth in the United States. The popularity of PCP abuser gradually decreased in recent years. However, the PCP abuse is still serious social problem due to its severe intoxication. In the present review, recent progress in our understanding about PCP abuse, dependence, intoxication, psychosis and the diagnosis and treatment was summarized. A long time has passed since the epidemic of PCP abuse, while there are few medical advances for PCP-induced disorder. It is strongly desirable to develop medical approaches to PCP abuse, dependence, intoxication, and psychosis.
