A family is like a sports team – everyone has a different role, everyone has something they are good at, and everyone has something they enjoy. Naturally, and sometimes with a little push, everyone will fall into their role and act accordingly. This is just a natural thing that happens in life in general. However, when it comes to addiction it is seemingly no different. When an addiction is present in one of the family members, everyone still naturally assumes a position with correlating duties. Some of these could be beneficial, some could be harmful, and some could even be indifferent.
