Event Details

Alison Smela pictureTitle: It's Never Too Late to Recover with Alison Smela

Event Description:  Alison Smela battled alcoholism and anorexia for 30 years before she finally believed that it was not too late for her to recover. Today, she has been sober for a decade and free from disordered eating patterns for five years and counting! Because of this life-changing experience, Alison has embraced the role of recovery activist, mentor, author, speaker and teacher so that other struggling people will know that it is NEVER too late in life to recover.

If you feel like it is too late for you to recover - or that you aren't "sick enough" to start working on recovery - join us and discover why today is always a great day to renew your efforts to heal!

Presenter Bio: In 2002 Alison Smela sought in-patient treatment for alcoholism and in 2008, entered a residential treatment center to combat anorexia.  To honor her continuous recovery she stepped away from her corporate career in advertising and has dedicated herself to being of service to those seeking help.  In addition to sponsoring/mentoring women in both recovery fellowships, Alison speaks at treatment centers and support groups not only to encourage mid-life recovery but to be a living example of hope.  She wrote and recorded a radio testimonial about her experience at The Renfrew Center which aired in South Florida.  At the same time, she was a guest on “Recovery in Motion” (WTFL-AM, Miami, FL).  Alison is a blogger partner with several online recovery communities and has been the focus of articles such as, “More Older Adults Getting Eating Disorders” (Chicago Sun-Times), “Eating Disorders and the Executive Woman” (Forbes.com) and “Is An Eating Disorder Part Of The High-Powered Career Woman Package?” (thegrindstone.com).  Alison has been an active board member for a 12-Step fellowship club and currently serves on MentorCONNECT's Board of Directors.  Alison lives outside Chicago with her husband, Matt.
