Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- We told you about "Hangover Heaven" a few months ago.
It is an intravenous or IV-equipped bus in Las Vegas that promises to help partiers to recover from a long night of drinking.
It turns out that Las Vegas is not the only place that you can take advantage of this service.
The bus not only offers fluids through an IV to rehydrate those who choose to use its service, it can also add vitamins to the mix.
And that is something that is becoming a trend in other parts of the country.
Last month, singer Rihanna tweeted a photo of herself hooked up to an IV bag.
Some reports call it the "Party-Girl Drip."
Other celebrities such as Simon Cowell, Cindy Crawford and Madonna have been known to have liquid vitamins pumped straight into their bodies.
And now, private clinics are popping up in cities like New York and Los Angeles.
You can get everything from Vitamins B and C to minerals like zinc and chromium added to an IV.
Doctors say that it helps treat chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety.
It is not cheap though. A typical 45-minute session costs between $175 and $275.
