Will you reach those who have taken the step orwill you just reach those who just say no already? With education, people still decide to cross over anyway. Are you strong enough? Experience is helpful but I wouldn't recommend it. There is a woman, a counselor, who's area of expertise is crack addicts. She joined their ranks. If she can ever come back,she will make an outstanding counselor. Last seen, she's a walking corpse. After the first try, all are walking corpses. She stole from her own children to support her habit. She has prostituted herself. Jail and rehabs to no avail. Her children are scattered across the country but they know where each are and keep in touch. Is she still of value?
Welcome to reality. Good luck.
