help with my CEL

i might have posted this question in the wrong section.

just got this car. its an 02 SVT focus. i dont beat on it or anything. timing belt was changed relatively recent. its throwing a code p1381, which i hear is kind of notorious for this car.
thoughts and or ideas? i'm probably going to end up taking it to a mechanic. i'm just trying to better understand what im getting into.
is this an expensive fix? is it safe to drive still?

thanks in adance

I've never dealt with this problem personally but this should be a good resource if you haven't been over it yet:
