We envision a world where individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder are not sidelined because of their past, but welcomed, embraced and included as valuable, lovable people with limitless futures.

Everything We Do Comes From A Place Of GRATITUDE
Our founder, Jean Krisle, is the grateful mother of a son in long-term recovery from a substance use disorder. Every day brings new gratitude as her son Kollin lives and thrives.
Jean is keenly aware that she is one of the lucky ones. She is also aware that each new day with her son is a miracle.There are many who have lost their children to this destructive disease. She grieves with those who grieve and strives to provide hope to those whose hope is waning.
Along with prayers for peace for the countless who have lost loved ones to the deadly misuse of substances, Jean expresses her personal gratitude and prays that all in recovery will continue to choose life.
At 10,000 Beds, following the lead of our founder, everything we do to support and promote recovery is our way of expressing joy and gratitude for every new day of life chosen by each person in recovery.
We celebrate recovery. We are grateful for recovery. Our mission is recovery.
