Mullen is supposed to have been taken to the hospital in a critical condition, where he spent two days in intensive care.
Upon his release from the hospital, the NRL provided support services and Mullen checked in the withdrawal course for six weeks.
He later moved from his hometown of Newcastle to Wollongong.
Mullen was a star of the State of Origin who once bore a contract of $ 1 million a year.
He played 211 games for the Knights and was touted as the & # 39; next big thing & # 39; of the game.
But he received a four-year ban on the use of doping after he was caught with steroids in 2017 during a routine drug test.
The arrest of Mullen comes after the police started an investigation last September into the large-scale drug supply on the NSW north coast.
According to Nine & # 39; s Danny Weidler, the alleged drug ring is considered to be involved in the delivery of cocaine to the Newcastle region.
The snare force has already arrested 11 people, including the host of the party where reportedly a Mullen overdose has been given.
Former heavyweight boxer Les Mason was arrested weeks after the event and charged with commercial drug assistance.
Daily Mail Australia does not suggest that he was involved in the overdose of Mullen.
High-profile personal trainer Matthew Pearce would be the most important behind the drug plan.
