Hydration is key
Guy comes in on Halloween night with a serum alcohol level of 87, tested positive for amphetamines, benzos and cocaine is staying as a B&B patient. In the morning one of the residents calls a bunch of nurses over and points out party-guy gnawing on his IV tubing while making asinine tranquilized animal-like noises. When he finally wakes up several hours later, he states he feels like he was eating or drinking something salty. The guy managed to gnaw through his tubing and drink the normal saline. At least he was hydrated.
