Crossing the Line Radio, with former NRL player Dan Conn

 Dan Conn

Former National Rugby League player Dan Conn still finds it hard to admit he is an addict. Dan retired in 2011 aged 25, after a neck injury required him to have a spinal fusion. By then, he was already addicted to painkillers. Now wellness director for the Collective Wellness Group, Dan hopes recounting his story can help others to avoid the pathway to potential self-destruction he followed.  He chats to Rupert about how he recognised and eventually overcame his addiction.
