Health Rocks! is a decision-making program primarily focused on youth grades 6-8 but contains lessons that can be adapted to benefit youth of all ages. The program is taught to help young people learn skills such as critical thinking, how to manage stress, how to handle peer pressure, and how to communicate effectively. Special emphasis is given to avoiding the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs that are likely to cause harm or addiction. 

The program includes components that bring youth and adults together as partners in developing community strategies that prepare youth to make healthy lifestyle choices. Health Rocks! was designed with the belief that programs that incorporate life-skill development and decision making will truly reduce drug use and other high risk behaviors in young people.  Personal, social skills, and abilities help youth become more resistant to substance use.  Ultimately, we want to have children who are already forming their opinions about tobacco, alcohol, and drugs to make healthy choices to resist pressures from peers and other factors.
