The mission of 10,000 Beds is to connect individuals seeking help for addiction to vetted treatment programs.
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 is #ontheroad4recovery. In 2017 & 2018 we crisscrossed the United States in “BigBlue” (our RV) to raise awareness and change perceptions of addiction and recovery. We have been warmly greeted by thousands and thousands of people as we visited more than half of our United States and logged nearly 20,000 miles. When not on the road, we call Utah “home”.
Our founder, Jean Krisle, led 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, Fast-Lane Leaders – effective leadership in our fast-paced world, and Five-Finger Leadership – how to effectively lead in any situation or role.
For more information, please reach out to Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
We have been awarded GuideStar’s 2018 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.

ATTENTION TREATMENT PROGRAMS!
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.
