Mobile Clinic Offers People Hangover Cure In Austin

Posted: Updated:

New Year's is of course recognized as a big drinking holiday.

And if you over-do it tonight, there's a business in Austin that can help with that hangover.

When the ball drops, you might be inclined to have a few drinks as part of your celebration.

But what happens when the party doesn't really feel like a party anymore? For many, the dreaded hangover will kick in, caused by dehydration. It often involves nausea and a strong headache.

Rolling Revival's trained medical staff offer a cure for that.

Starting at $99, they administer IV treatments which can include different medications.

"When you can replenish it through the IV, it's just directly straight into your system, so it just automatically… it's like putting gas into your gas tank," said Dr .Shirat Ling.

Their motto is: "party like a rock star tonight. Feel like a celebrity tomorrow."

Nicole Manning, a customer, tells us that in a city of young professionals, it's a must have. 

"People like to go out and party, go to Sixth Street, go downtown, go have fun with their friends and maybe have to go to work the next morning and they had too many drinks. So it would be nice to have a place to go to feel 100 percent," she said.

"It's been a secret of the medical world for many many years , and now we're just taking it to the public," said Michelle Eades.

Michelle Eades is one of the founders of Rolling Revival. She tells us they often get calls from bachelorette parties, athletes, and even private companies. All to help get them rehydrated in about 30 minutes.

"The number one question is how this is legal? Well, it's legal because the people that are on the bus that are treating clients are actually medical professionals so they're all individually licensed. So this is just like a clinic," said Eades.

Typically, it takes a lot of alcohol to get that hangover. So what happens to your body when you binge drink?

The Center for Disease Control says that it can cause liver disease, neurological damage, even high blood pressure or a stroke. Also, more shockingly , approximately one in six adults binge drinks four times a month, consuming about eight drinks per binge.

The Austin Police Department tells us they often see binge drinking in the younger crowd.

"We don't want to dictate what people do. It's not what we're here to do. We're just trying to say that if you are going to do that, understand that there are health risks involved. Understand also that if you get out there and you try to drive after something like that, you may not feel like you're intoxicated, but it affects in the way your judgment operates," Detective Michael Jennings of the DWI unit said.

Doctor Ling says over drinking is the choice of each individual. and for those who might see their bus as a negative, she tells us it's it just a way to help those suffering.

"We're not enabling them because it's not like we're saying come on in every time that you're binge drinking. We're saying: we're here for need if you happen to be nauseated or dehydrated from your current activities that you normally do, then we're here for you"

Doctor Ling says most people walk around dehydrated every day. You should drink half your body weight in ounces every day to prevent dehydration, she says.

And for those hangover cures like drinking coffee or drinking more alcohol, doing that will just dehydrate you even more.
