Can anyone suggest some good Christian songs dealing with drug/alcohol problems?

    And overcoming them? A friend of mine is having some issues and I'm trying to find some good music for her. Music always helps her through stuff. She mostly likes rock, but any kind of music is fine.

    Superchick and Supertones (RIP) both have written multiple songs dealing with addictions.
    Superchick songs most specifically: Courage and Hero

    I know there's a lot of other ones, but apparently I can think of any specific ones right now.

    I think the following songs would be inspiring or helpful. Some of them deal with addiction, some of them deal with setting yourself right with God and a relationship with him (without being too "worshippy" or "preachy"). Tobymac is more hip-hop and the others are on the hard rock side.

    Irene by Tobymac
    When In Doubt by Thousand Foot Krutch
    The Party Song by Emery
    The Terrible Secret by Emery
    Missing Pages by Seventh Day Slumber
    The Fight by The Classic Crime
    Self-Destruct & Die by Dead Poetic
    Down by Kutless
    Run by Kutless

    Whiskey Seed by Kerry Livgren on his Seeds of Change lp (1980)

    Glenn Kaiser deals with the topic quite a bit in his music http://www.glennkaiser.com

    I was just about to list that one too. "Bad" is also another U2 song, both of which Bono wrote about friends and people in Dublin who were struggling with drugs. There are a lot of great U2 songs that could fit into this category.

    I don't know if it's actually about drugs but Switchfoot's "The Fatal Wound" hints at the use of drugs and sudden death.

    ..and on the Glen Kaiser note, check out when he was with Rez (resurrection) Band...the song "Shadows" is very much directed at getting out of drug addiction.

    definitely go with Seventh Day Slumber. with the lead singer being an ex-drug addict, he uses his experiences in his music. their stuff is really good.

    How could this happen to me by Simple Plan

    They are a secular band but this is a good song, I would actually show your friend the video, you can find it on youtube.com it is about one of their friends who was killed in a drunk driver related car crash. A pastor who works for SANE-Sooner Alcoholics and Narcotics Education shows this when he talks to students about alcohol.

    Chimes by Project 86. It explores the temptation angle, anyway.

    Really? I thought it would be too hard for her ;) That's great.

    Here is another good video...I don't love the song(their older ones are better) But it probably applies to you more than her.
