Methamphetamine use is on the rise among street-involved populations. Because of this, the Toronto Drop-in Network (TDIN) has created a training specific to the frontline to help orient workers to methamphetamine, as well as its current context on the street. This training aims to dispel myths surrounding methamphetamine, and works to instill practical knowledge based on facts, as well as good team and individual practices. The focus of this training is on maintaining positive relationships with participants and minimizing the need for involvement by the criminal justice system.
