“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.”
— Jean Krisle, Founder, 10,000 Beds, Inc.
The mission of 10,000 Beds is to connect individuals seeking help for addiction, to vetted treatment programs and to be a resource to families affected by the disease of addiction.
We are able to accomplish our mission through the 10,000 Beds “One Bed. One Life” Scholarship program. We partner with extraordinary treatment programs throughout the United States that donate at least one addiction treatment scholarship annually for qualifying 10,000 Beds scholarship applicants who are without resources and actively seeking help for addiction.
Over the past three years, 10,000 Beds has criss-crossed the country through our #ontheroad4recovery program. This year alone we have traveled to California, Arizona, Idaho, throughout Utah and Nevada.
We have met with thousands of people – families, community leaders, educators, students, individuals battling addiction, fellow travelers, and more. We have loved this outreach effort and the people we have met along the way. Our 2020 program will be slightly different, watch for updates, it’s going to be a lot of fun!
Our online application for 2019 scholarships will be open Monday, August 19th for one day. We expect to receive more than 100 applications. As you can imagine, with the addiction crisis our nation is facing, the number of applicants we receive is enormous. We close applications mid-October each year to allow us to award scholarships to our remaining approved applicants before year’s end.
We are not a 24/7 emergency hotline and we cannot accommodate requests for immediate placement in treatment. Please remember: our process takes time.
