We are 10,000 Beds, Inc. Our mission is recovery.
10,000 Beds is a nonprofit 501c3 organization working to connect those who need help with those who can help.
WE ARE #ONTHEROAD4RECOVERY
Our founder Jean Krisle, and her husband Hal, are on a year-long road trip, criss-crossing the country to connect with new and existing treatment program partners, connect with people and families affected by substance use disorder, defend the right to treatment, elevate conversations, change perceptions and celebrate recovery.
They sold their home and bought “Big Blue” our nickname for the 40′ RV wrapped in the blue and white of the 10,000 Beds logo – now Jean and Hal’s home. And they are #ontheroad4recovery for 2017 and some of 2018.
As we travel through the US, our goal is to 1) protect an addict’s right to treatment, 2) promote ethics in the recovery industry, 3) propel conversations around substance use disorders into effective and appropriate action, 4) partner with extraordinary treatment programs to provide scholarships to persons without resources who are ready, willing and seeking help for a substance use disorder, and 5) provide a recognized standard of excellence as we support our clients and partners.
In 2016 we awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships through our extraordinary treatment program partners. We were able to provide support to more than 250 clients.
In 2017 we expect to more than double the number of scholarships awarded last year. We expect to provide support to more than 1,000 clients this year.
We have more than 200 treatment program partners around the country. Each of our extraordinary partners donates at least one scholarship every year. And each has been vetted by our team of advisors, board members, and staff.
Applicants apply online through this website. Our 10,000 Beds online application process includes 25+ questions, a comprehensive review and assessment, consideration of unique needs to identify the appropriate program, and coordination with the selected treatment center to make certain they have a scholarship bed available and allow for their own clinical assessment prior to admission.
