Who We Are

HISTORY Tapestry Eating Disorder Treatment Centers first opened its doors in 2007 with a program designed to provide compassionate, realistic eating disorder treatment in Western North Carolina. As a registered nurse, Tapestry founder and executive director Tina Nowak started by developing a residential eating disorder program at a distinguished North Carolina hospital. Tina would see patients come in after relapsing into disordered eating, and she asked them why they thought they relapsed. Patients would say the treatment they received was punitive, sterile, too clinical and did not give them the skills needed to maintain recovery after treatment. There was no hands-on learning when it came to meal planning, grocery shopping or food preparation. These patients’ treatment experience made them feel like they were in a hospital and then were released back into the real world where they would become overwhelmed by the thought of making sustained healthy eating choices. Tapestry became the missing piece that Tina’s clients needed to succeed. The comforting environment at Tapestry is cultivated to put clients at ease enough to allow themselves to open up and speak freely about their experiences. Based on the belief that recovery from an eating disorder is a right and not a privilege, Tapestry continues to provide effective treatment and education that gives clients the skills they need to achieve recovery that lasts a lifetime. 4

Who We Serve

OUR CLIENTELE Tapestry clientele are children, adolescents and adults with eating disorders, often presenting with co-morbid personality disorders. Some clients come from an inpatient hospital and are stepping down to Tapestry’s residential program. Tapestry clientele is primarily female; however, the adolescent program is more evenly split between males and females. The Tapestry adult partial hospitalization program serves men and women. Tapestry clients come from across the southeastern United States. Most clients are fragile, vulnerable and often feel overwhelmed by the idea of grocery shopping and cooking. The client experiences a warm, nonjudgmental environment at Tapestry.

How We Look

Color Variations The full-color logo should always be used on white or light-colored backgrounds for maximum clarity. If the logo is applied to any dark or low-contrast backgrounds, the reversed version should be used. The grayscale version should be used on one-color print applications.

Clear Space Requirements Both versions of the Tapestry logo should appear with proper clear space surrounding them to ensure maximum clarity. The clear space measurement is based on the exact logo size you are working with, so an appropriate amount of clear space can be determined regardless of the size of the logo. To calculate the minimum clear space, use the height of the “T” in the word “Tapestry.” No elements should be placed within the clear space of the logo.
