The Covid Epidemic has only inflamed the already existing mental health and substance use epidemic; depression, anxiety and overdoses are out of control.  Treatment programs throughout the country are full, detox centers have waiting lists, and scholarships are very hard to find. At 10,000 Beds we continue to award scholarships, but the wait from application to treatment is much longer than ever before. We were never a 24/7 Emergency Placement Center, but this new reality has made our work even more difficult. Please be patient with us, we are doing our best; please note that scholarship applications will open again February 15, 2021. 

Supporters: If you missed making 10,000 Beds your LAST donation of 2020, please make us your FIRST donation of 2021! Please make a donation to support our 2021 scholarship program.

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.

Through our 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.

Through our 2017-2020 #ontheROAD4 recovery outreach program, we were able to reach individuals, families and companies throughout the country to raise awareness, end stigma and provide hope.

Our new outreach program, #ontheAIR4recovery is just one result of the new normal of COVID-19: a podcast involving individuals, families, and 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. 

From 2017 – 2020, 10,000 Beds criss-crossed the country with our #ontheROAD4recovery program. With more than 30,000 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, corporate leaders, and more. We have loved this outreach effort and the people we have met along the way. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has forced us to change our approach to outreach, but we are thrilled with our newest program!

In January 2020, our first visits and community presentations of the year started in Arizona. Again, COVID-19 brought these visits to a screeching halt.

And so, because we are dedicated to helping the many who are battling addiction, we are going virtual! Our newest program, our #ontheAIR4recovery podcast, will feature our founder, Jean Krisle, as host. We are looking for guests, so please reach out to 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.

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

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


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 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”.

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!

Everything We Do Comes From A Place Of GRATITUDE

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.
