“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.
We are grateful for our 2020 Corporate Sponsor – Beechtree Diagnostics. We appreciate this forward thinking company which was founded on a simple premise – “It’s more than a test”. The dedicated team at Beechtree Diagnostics knows there is an individual on the other side of any test, as well as many individuals providing professional medical care to ensure optimum outcomes. This translates into an organization that constantly improves and challenges the status quo. Beechtree Diagnostics is also the Presenting Sponsor of our upcoming Gratitude Gala! We are honored to be connected! www.beechtreediagnostics.com
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 our two main programs: our 10,000 Beds “One Bed. One Life” Scholarship program and our #ontheroad4recovery Outreach program.
Through our 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.
Through our outreach program, over the past four years, we have been able to reach individuals, families and companies to raise awareness, end stigma and provide hope.
Our newest program (scheduled to launch in late July) is a result of the new normal of COVID-19: an online program involving individuals, families, programs to provide information and interaction in a safe, positive and open online forum.
Connection is critical in this new reality of voluntary and forced isolation. Our goal is to encourage and facilitate positive communication and connection to those battling or recovering from addiction. Watch for our podcast announcement in early July!
We are sorry, but online applications are CLOSED for 2020 due to our current waiting list and the increased difficulty of obtaining scholarships due to COVID-19 restrictions and regulations. Once applications open again, they will be open on Monday’s only. Please remember that once your application is submitted, there is a process for approval. We are not a 24/7 overnight placement service or emergency hotline. Once approved, you will check in every Monday to stay active on our list, until we can find a scholarship for you.
We are not a 24/7 emergency hotline and we cannot accommodate requests for immediate placement in treatment. Please remember: our process takes time. Because we are thorough in our screening of applicants and vetting of treatment program partners, we have had fewer than a dozen people leave treatment before the program ended in the past 4 years. We are extremely proud of this and work hard to match our applicants to the right scholarship.
In 2017, 2018 and 2019, 10,000 Beds criss-crossed the country with our #ontheroad4recovery program. With more than 25,000 miles driven for recovery, it was our privilege to meet with thousands of people – families, community leaders, educators, students, treatment programs, individuals battling addiction, elected officials, fellow travelers, and more. We have loved this outreach effort and the people we have met along the way.
In January 2020, our first program visits and community presentations of the year started in Arizona. We look forward to meeting even more amazing people throughout the country this year.
Our #ontheroad4recovery outreach program allows us to connect with thousands of individuals, families and community members throughout the country.
In 2020 we have expanded our #ontheroad4recovery program to include the corporate world.
And we are going virtual! Watch for our #ontheAIR4recovery podcast in September 2020! We are looking for guests, please let us know how we can best spotlight you and share your story!
Our community & corporate outreach program (CCOP) was created to provide opportunities to meet with company leaders, human resource specialists, and employee groups to raise awareness and end the stigma too often associated with a person or family battling an addiction and also associated with individuals in recovery. We are dedicated to making the workplace a safe place for all.
