WACO, Texas — The Sunshine Recovery House is hosting its first 'Scared Sober Haunted House' starting Thursday to raise money for its addiction recovery housing.

This is the third time the non-profit has hosted Scared Sober, but the first at its new location in East Waco, provided by Waco Escape Rooms.

"When you're in addiction, you're walking in darkness. You create this web of lies. You're in a crazy place," explained executive director Jenn Tobin. "So each area goes around those themes."

Sunshine Recovery House is dedicated to helping women in the early stages of addiction recovery. The non-profit struggled with funding during the pandemic, as 25 News reported last fall.

The haunted house will run from Thursday, Oct. 27 to Monday, Oct. 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. The house is located at 412 McKeen St. in Waco.

Sunshine Recovery recommends a $10 donation for entry.

"It's all going back into the house. It's all going to fix the windows and the insulation of our house," Tobin said.
