The many family roles of addiction

The 1986 movie, "Under the Influence," portrays an alcoholic father (played by Andy Griffith) and the negative impact his addiction has on his family. Each family member takes on a different role to cope with his alcohol abuse, which is very common in dysfunctional families, said Mary Egan, director of outreach at Rosecrance in Rockford. We look at each character and which of the five roles they've assumed.
