Hangover:First Aider's Guide to Alcohol mentions administering activated charcoal to absorb the alcohol in the stomach.
A few years ago, I tied one on too hard after years of not drinking at all. I felt like I was in danger. I was really sick. My body directed me to take charcoal, even before I knew of it being a hangover remedy. I took a large dose of it and within an hour, I was feeling ok again. Now, I take activated charcoal before and after any drinks and never have any symptoms.
Again, because of the absorption power of activated charcoal, it makes a perfect internal detox.
