Description

This resource is a practical guide for frontline workers who interact with users of psychostimulants (methamphetamines, cocaine) and need to respond to challenging situations. The guide is intended for a range of workers, particularly those who do not have a professional or clinical background

Practical tips are provided for reducing the likelihood of challenging situations, responding during a crisis, and reviewing the management of a challenging situation. Considerations are also provided for specific service settings such as needle exchange programs, outreach services, and withdrawal programs. It is intended to be read in conjunction with Treatment Approaches for Methamphetamine Users: A Practical Guide for Frontline Workers.
