Dr. Kevin Sevarino received his Doctorate of Medicine in 1982 from McGill University and his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology in 1983 from the University of Connecticut. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Yale University and the University of Connecticut Schools of Medicine.

He is Board certified by the ABPN in Psychosomatic Medicine, and he is certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine. Dr. Sevarino combines this experience with past research experience in examining molecular mechanisms of addiction, with over 20 primary research publications.
