What is 10,000 Beds, Inc.?
10,000 Beds, Inc. (Ten Thousand Beds, Inc.) is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization.
With our partners, we provide addiction treatment scholarships to those who want and need help but are without resources. Our application process includes 25+ questions that must be answered by the applicant, a 3-tiered review and assessment, consideration of unique needs to identify the appropriate program, and coordination with the selected treatment center to make certain they have a scholarship bed available and allow for their own clinical assessment prior to admission.
How do I apply for a 10,000 Beds scholarship?
There is only one way to apply for a 10,000 Beds scholarship application. Please visit the applicant page on this website and follow the instructions. Your application must be complete and honest.
Three sets of eyes will review your application, our founder, our volunteer coordinator, and a member of our board of directors. Once this process is complete, we will reach out to let you know the status of your application and either move forward with reaching out to one of our treatment program partners, or offer you more appropriate options for your situation.
Why 10,000 Beds, Inc.?
The idea for 10,000 Beds was conceived in the fall of 2014. The idea was the result of conversations with many needing help who had no resources, followed by our Founder’s site visits to treatment centers with empty beds. Our unique model of contacting treatment programs directly for the donation of scholarship beds was created as an effective and credible option to raising millions of dollars. This model is recognized as innovative and effective, and applauded throughout the addiction industry.
What does 10,000 Beds do?
Our mission is to protect an addict’s right to treatment, promote ethics in the addiction industry, and partner with extraordinary treatment programs to provide scholarships to those without resources who are ready, willing and seeking help for addiction.
Our goal is to identify and award 10,000 scholarship treatment beds by 2020. We will do this by partnering with quality treatment centers throughout the nation who sponsor one or more treatment beds each year. We currently have more than 100 partners nationwide.
How does a treatment center participate as a 10,000 Beds partner?
It’s easy. We ask our partners to commit to providing a scholarship for at least one bed per year (we consider “one bed” to be a standard program of treatment offered by the awarding treatment center, with a minimum requirement of 30 days). Many of our partners have generously offered more than one bed per year.
For more information, please call us at 385-232-4303, we are anxious to learn more about your program and to help you provide scholarships to those without resources.
