A BEAUTY PAGEANT WINNER FIGHTS ADDICTION

Caty Davis, who is also known as Miss Tennessee, is speaking out about addiction because as she told Knox News, “I grew up in a family plagued by addiction. I have 12 family members who have or are still struggling with addiction. Unfortunately, I lost my father, my brother, and grandfather to addiction, all to this brain disease that alters brain chemistry.”

Now Davis is doing appearances at high schools and other places where she talks about the “four Cs,” which many in recovery eventually learn when dealing with loved ones suffering from addiction. “I didn’t cause it, I can’t cure it, but I can celebrate myself, and make good choices.”

Davis often speaks to three to five schools a day, and she is also an ambassador for Facing Addiction, who came up with the Count It, Lock It, Drop it campaign, which refers to keeping track of your medication intake and making sure no one else can steal it, like your kids. 

“I’m not just a blond pageant girl,” she says. “I want to talk to these kids across the state and hopefully make a difference to them. I have a story of empowerment where I was vulnerable and depressed feeling like I was alone. If a pageant girl can say that, make it real for them and make them understand, then I want to do that every day.”
