Gabrielle Denize Newsam, M.D.

Dr. Newsam believes in treating the whole person; she helps her patients not only cope with their opiate use disorder, but also their medical conditions. In line with Dr. Newsam’s treatment philosophy, SouthLight’s Opioid Treatment Program provides care for the emotional and medical needs of its patients, using both medication-assisted treatment and counseling. 

She holds an Associates in Science and a Bachelors in Biology from City University of New York Medgar Evers College, a Bachelors in Sports and Health Science from American Military University, and a medical degree from Rutgers Medical School (formerly known as University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – New Jersey Medical School).

“Opiate use/misuse has increased across the country. As one of several providers in Wake County, the SouthLight team is here to help people from all walks of life deal with their substance use disorder in a compassionate and empathetic fashion. We provide a variety of services geared towards serving the patient as a whole, not just as someone battling substance use disorder.”
