Kevin Hill, M.D., M.H.S., is an addiction psychiatrist, Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He grew up in Rochester, New York and attended McQuaid Jesuit High School. He subsequently graduated from Skidmore College and Jefferson Medical College before training in psychiatry at the Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Residency Training Program. Dr. Hill earned a Masters in Health Sciences from the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at Yale and also completed the Partners Healthcare Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program.
Dr. Hill’s clinical research is focused primarily on medications and behavioral interventions that might improve available treatments for those wanting to stop smoking marijuana. Dr. Hill was the recipient of a prestigious federal K99/R00 grant award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to test the efficacy of nabilone as a potential medication treatment for patients with marijuana addiction. His work has been funded by NIDA, the Brain and Behavior Research Foundations, the American Lung Association, the Greater Boston Council on Alcoholism, and the Peter G. Dodge Foundation. He has received multiple competitive awards as an investigator and published on numerous topics in addiction. Dr. Hill is the author of Marijuana: The Unbiased Truth about the World’s Most Popular Weed (Hazelden, March 2015).
In addition to the clinical trials he directs, Dr. Hill sees patients in his private practice and consults to the Boston Red Sox, the National Football League, and the National Basketball Association. Over the past several years, Dr. Hill has been asked to weigh in on marijuana policy issues such as medical marijuana and legalization of marijuana. He is committed to bridging the gap between the science and the public perception about marijuana. He has spoken nationally and internationally to students from public and private schools, parents, healthcare professionals, and organizations about marijuana science, policy, and treatment, as well as alcohol and opioids.
