Hangover Heaven promises mobile `cure` in 45 mins

Washington - After a night of binge drinking in Las Vegas, a new mobile recovery facility has offered to bring a hangover cure to your door.

Hangover Heaven is a curbside service designed to treat people with a sore head by rehydrating them with IVs and giving them anti-nausea medicine.

Started by Dr. Jason Burke, a board-certified anesthesiologist who graduated from Duke University, the company offers a range of packages and will ‘deliver’ them to you; their fleet has pickup areas at major Las Vegas hotels, Fox News reported.

Burke’s website mentions that he can have you feeling better in less than 45 minutes so you can “continue the party, or just get back to your normal self.”

All medications are FDA-approved, according to HangoverHeaven.com, and personnel use paediatric IVs and numbing medicine to make the process comfortable.

“People come to Las Vegas to blow off some steam, relieve stress and have a good time. Should we lose an entire day of our vacation because the bartender over-served us the night before?” Burke says on his website.

“I say NO.”

The basic package, called Redemption, starts at 130 dollars (introductory price 90 dollars) and comprises flushing the toxins from the body.

The Salvation Package is priced at 200 dollars (introductory price 150 dollars) and is the business’ “most effective service,” including IV hydration, anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory medications.

Starting April 16, Burke will offer In-Room Treatment, where a doctor will come to the individual’s room and administer two bags of IV fluids, anti-nausea medicine, anti-inflammatories and vitamins.

“Our buses can work magic, but they cannot bring you back from the dead,” the website’s disclaimer reads.

The study has been published in the Las Vegas Review Journal.
