Treatment facilities consider Level l and Level II areas to be low-risk zones. Essentially, these are either restricted to patients or place them under constant supervision.

When designing low-risk zones, residential looks are appropriate and encouraged in communal spaces. Areas that fall into these categories include corridors, activity rooms, counseling rooms, interview rooms and staff or service areas.

Key considerations
  • Selection of more residential-looking finishes and furniture is preferred
  • Use murals and printed artwork to calm and inspire; must be securely fastened to avoid tampering
  • With flooring avoid patterns and color combinations that could contribute to visual misperception
