In this Monday, March 17, 2014 photo, Patty DiRenzo holds a picture of her son, Salvatore Marchese, in her home in Blackwood, N.J. Salvatore died from a heroin overdose in 2010. DiRenzo spent years trying to get help for him, but was denied for many reasons - she was constantly told she didn’t meet the "criteria" for treatment centers, she even got turned away from emergency rooms because doctors say alcohol withdrawal is life threatening, but heroin withdrawal is not.
