Orland Park is actually a very fucked up town, but the fact that it's very affluent makes people who aren't from Orland Park believe that it's a great place to live. And in many ways, it is. It has great schools, shopping centers, recreation areas for people into sports and swimming, etc. For the most part, the houses are very nice, and definitely very pricey. It was actually rated as one of the best places to live in Barron's magazine or some shit.
However, Orland Park also has a little bit of a, how should I put this; a little bit of a drug problem. It seems like everybody and their mother is addicted to alcohol, cocaine, heroin, prescription drugs (Adderall, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Xanax).

It's not uncommon at all to be driving down the street and see guys and girls in their cars smoking weed, sniffing cocaine/heroin, drinking, etc. They do this shit like it's legal; it's fucking crazy. It really is.
Many, many kids from Orland Park kill themselves too. For whatever reason (probably because of these drug/alcohol related issues), Orland Park is a huge haven for...
