‘Hangover Clinic’ Claims it Can Cure Your Hangover in An Hour

New Year's Eve celebrants feeling some pain come Tuesday morning in the Windy City are in luck: a new Chicago clinic has the stuff to reverse the course of a nasty hangover.

Revive Hydration Clinic opened its doors earlier this month in the city's River North neighborhood and is being heralded as the city's first hangover clinic, per Crain's Chicago Business.

For a price of $99, staff at the clinic, located at 222 W. Ontario St., Suite 450, will treat patients' hangover symptoms -- such as nausea or headaches -- with intravenous fluids or other medications, Crain's reports. The session takes about an hour and the impact is reportedly nearly immediate.

The clinic is the brainchild of Dr. Jack Dybis, a surgeon, who explained to Fox Chicago that the medical world is "very aware" of patients' struggle to rehydrate after a night of heavy drinking.

Of course, hungover types aren't the only people who could benefit from treatment at the clinic: as Racked Chicago reported, treatment also would help those battling a cold or flu, the jetlagged or those looking to boost their athletic performance.

While Revive is the first clinic of its kind in Chicago, Las Vegas' Hangover Heaven offers a similar treatment -- on wheels. Its business, which is based out of a bus that drives up and down the Sin City's main strip, is fully mobile.
