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.

In 2017, 2018 and 2019, 10,000 Beds criss-crossed the country with our #ontheroad4recovery program. In 2019 alone we traveled to California, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, and throughout Utah.

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! We are selling BigBlue and will be traveling the country with a much more “inclusive” RV, allowing us to incorporate the RV into our events and your activities! We can hardly wait!

We are not a 24/7 emergency hotline or treatment placement service.

If you are in an emergency situation, dial 911 immediately.

Our online applications for 2019 scholarships are open and will be open every Monday in October 2019. We expect to receive more than 100 applications each week. As you can imagine, with the addiction crisis our nation is facing, the number of applicants we receive  is enormous. We close applications at the end of October each year to allow us to award scholarships to our remaining approved applicants before year’s end.

Our last day to submit an application in 2019 will be Monday, October 28th.

In 2020, scholarship applications will re-open on Monday, February 3rd.

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.


We are pleased to introduce Beechtree Diagnostics, our 2019 Corporate Sponsor. We appreciate their integrity, enthusiasm and commitment to helping others. Our continuing scholarship and outreach programs are possible because of our individual and corporate supporters.

And we are thrilled to announce the sponsorship from HugsCBD. This amazing organization donates a percentage of their profits to 10,000 Beds, each and every month, funding multiple scholarships.

We have been awarded GuideStar’s 2019 PLATINUM SEAL OF TRANSPARENCY, the highest level of recognition GuideStar can give a nonprofit organization. We operate under the guiding principles of our Code of Ethics.

10,000 Beds has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for unethical practices and behaviors, specifically in the addiction treatment industry. We hold ourselves and our partners to the same standard.

Everything We Do Comes From A Place Of GRATITUDE

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

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. We are #ontheroad4recovery.
