One Day at a Time, With Purpose Prize Winner Jay Davidson

Jay Davidson's rewarding second career.

Often, someone who’s "been there" can help more than anyone else.

Recovering alcoholic Jay Davidson shared hard-won experience when he founded The Healing Place to help those grappling with addiction.  Its recovery rate is five times the national average.

Davidson has just received The Purpose Prize, an award given to social innovators who’re contributing in the second half of their lives.
