|Sedona - Flagstaff Arizona ALC Facts and Information
The Arizona Department of Health Services uses the term
"Assisted Living Center" (ALC) in lieu of the more universally
recognized term, "Assisted Living Facility". The state of Arizona
applies the same basic regulatory standards and requirements to
both adult foster care establishments and Assisted Living
Centers, although the larger size and scope of support an
Assisted Living Center represents does require a wider range of
licensing prerequisites which we outline below.

assisted living facility which provides resident rooms or residential

Living Center can be licensed for one or more of the following

chemical restraints, behavioral health residential services or residents requiring services the
Assisted Living Center is not licensed for and/or capable of providing.
