UTAH: 1st Annual Gratitude Gala: Celebrating Recovery on October 27, 2018 at the Natural History Museum of Utah, Salt Lake City

CALIFORNIA: 2nd Annual Gratitude Gala: Celebrating Recovery on April 13, 2019 at the Bowers Museum, Santa Ana

The mission of 10,000 Beds is to connect individuals seeking help for addiction to vetted treatment programs through our scholarship program.

We partner with extraordinary treatment programs throughout the United States to provide treatment scholarships to individuals without resources seeking help for addiction.

10,000 Beds has been honored to be #ontheroad4recovery to raise awareness and change perceptions of addiction and recovery. We have been warmly greeted every where we have been.  When not on the road, we call Utah “home”.

Our founder, Jean Krisle, grew 10,000 Beds from an idea to a respected and innovative organization in just three years. When not #ontheroad4recovery, she speaks to audiences large and small, in the corporate world as well as the addiction and recovery space, delivering her trademark keynotes: Failing2Win: The Paradox of Success – stories from her personal life, connections through 10,000 Beds, and a network of accomplished individuals who succeeded after failure and Fast Lane Leadership – how to be an effective, and responsible leader in our fast-paced world.

For more information, please reach out to Jean at

 “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.”

If you are in an emergency situation, call 9-1-1 immediately!


If you’ve already applied for a scholarship, please remember to check in every Monday by email per the instructions you received following your application submission! This keeps your application active!

We are not a 24/7 emergency hotline. We do not provide overnight placement. Our scholarships take time, weeks and sometimes months.

Hang in there, you are on our radar!



Today we are asking you to pledge one scholarship annually to 10,000 Beds.

Here’s how it works:

  • You pledge to provide a scholarship for treatment to be used by the 10,000 Beds Scholarship Program.

  • We’ll come out and visit your program.

  • Our applicants apply through our online application which is carefully reviewed. We do a thorough pre-screening (saving you time).

  • We connect our applicants to the best matching program with an available bed.

  • We reach out to you if your program is a good match.

  • IF you have an available scholarship bed, we ask you to internally review the potential recipient’s application and conduct your own clinical assessment to determine and verify appropriateness for the client’s placement in your program.

  • Once we have a green light from you, we’ll arrange transportation to the nearest airport to your program. Typically, you will meet the client at the baggage area upon arrival.

  • There are no fees. No hidden agendas. No kickbacks.

  • We appreciate your willingness to help someone who is unable to help themselves and has no financial or personal resources (family or friends) willing to help.

PHASES. We are constantly reaching out to identify IOP and Sober Living programs to assist in your efforts to provide a lasting impact on your clients. Our hope is to provide additional support through connections to local out patient programs to allow our mutual client to transition back to sobriety in a safe, supportive environment.

AFTER CARE. We have launched our new AfterCare app to our 10,000 Beds graduates and will continue to build this program into a support tool for long term sobriety. This is also a vital tool for outcome measurements.

10,000 Beds In The News

Everything We Do Comes From A Place Of GRATITUDE

Our founder, Jean Krisle, is the grateful mother of a son who chose treatment over death. 

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 all about recovery.
