A 10,000 Beds complimentary event for those who are involved in the addiction recovery or mental health space, personally or professionally.

10,000 Beds is excited to begin our 9th year of operation with a CELEBRATION of Recovery at our Inaugural 10,000 Beds Celebrating Recovery Un-Conference & Breakfast of Heroes in Salt Lake City. Future events will also be held in CA, AZ, PA, MA and Southern UT. Watch for new info!

For our Salt Lake City, Utah event, we look forward to gathering in person at 7:30 AM on June 30th at the beautiful Hilton Salt Lake City Center. This event will include breakfast, program, presentations, and the UnConference rotating network. Registration opens at 7 AM.

This event provides an opportunity for 10,000 Beds to thank the many who are making a positive difference in the addiction, mental health, & recovery space, while at the same time providing the opportunity for those in attendance to hear 15 capsule presentations and learn more about 10,000 Beds.

The Un-Conference portion of the event will provide a unique opportunity for attendees to hear from 18 professional presentations “up close and personal” as small groups of attendees rotate through the hall where exhibitors will be set up and have the opportunity to share their story and accomplishments to an intimate group of people.

This “un-conference” format allows for multiple presentations with direct and personal conversations between the presenters and attendees in the space of one hour – the normal time for one presenter to speak from a podium. Follow up information will be provided to attendees and exhibitors.


There is no cost to attend this event, but registration is required.

The 10,000 Beds Celebrating Recovery Un-Conference and Breakfast of Heroes is a 10,000 Bed’s signature fundraising event, so donations are encouraged! REGISTRATION WILL OPEN AT 7 AM.

If you plan to attend, you will need to register here to reserve a seat.


We are offering exhibit opportunities with space for only 18 organizations to share their programs, successes, and ideas associated with the addiction, recovery, and mental health space. For more information, please click here for exhibit information.

Since our founding in 2014, we have been privileged to award millions of dollars in treatment scholarships and help thousands of individuals and families as they battled addiction and mental health challenges.

We are grateful to the many who have been with us from the beginning, and to our new friends here today and throughout the nation. Because of you, and your support, lives have been changed for thousands of individuals and families battling substance use and mental health challenges. We salute you, and this breakfast is just one way for us to say ‘thank you’.


Your one-of-a-kind sponsorship of the 10,000 Beds Celebrating Recovery Un-Conference & Breakfast of Heroes event is a testament to your company or organization’s commitment to promoting mental health and celebrating the reality that recovery is possible.

Personal sponsorships are also available.

Sponsorship funds underwrite the cost of this important fundraising event, so every dollar raised goes directly to support 10,000 Beds and our programs. We encourage sponsors to attend this breakfast event and to select an internal champion from your organization to be assigned as the Table Captain.

Table Captains are a key factor in the success of the Breakfast of Heroes. By hosting a table, Table Captains connect us with community members who are passionate about mental health and recovery from a substance use disorder.

Financial contributions raised during the Celebrating Recovery event go directly toward 10,000 Bed’s mission to support people battling a mental health or substance use disorder.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, 10,000 Beds is both optimistic and prepared to manage this event with the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees in mind. We will hold our 2022 event in person at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center on June 30, 2022, with mask requirements as determined by local government on that day.
