Good evening ladies and gentlemen. My name is ____________ and it is my pleasure and honor to welcome you to this play “Addiction and Its Effect on the Family Unit”. I will be your (Master or Mistress of Ceremony). Addiction is a disease that affects not only the individual but the whole family unit. It affects stretch out to those who not only live in affluent communities but also those who live in not so affluent communities. It doesn’t matter whether you work on Wall Street or you live on Welfare. Many of us come from severely damaged families. At times, the insanity that reigns among our relatives feels overwhelming. Sometimes we feel like packing our bags and moving far, far away. We pray that our family members will join us in recovery but, to our great sadness, this does not always happen. Sometimes, despite our best efforts to carry the message, we find that we cannot help those we hold most dear. Our group experience has taught us that, frequently, we are too close to our relatives to help them.
