The Freedom Program has been designed to teach individuals how to deal more constructively with their deep-rooted feelings of shame, fear, guilt, depression, despair, revenge and suicide. Moving away from feelings such as rage, aggression, and frustration makes way for enthusiasm and a positive frame of mind, which is very needed for their further progress. Course participants learn how to deal with possible future conflict and stressful situations in a more capable manner. The Re-Cover Freedom Program cuts through the cycle of violence as individuals become more conscious of the consequences of their actions, by taking responsibility individuals search for the solutions to their problems within themselves rather than in the outside worldAs such, the course becomes an opportunity for self-reflection and the program lays the foundation for genuine rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

The program is meant as a support for already existing programs such as therapeutic, educational and other programs. The participants can make use of the knowledge and the set of techniques that they learn during the training for the rest of their lives.  Furthermore, they will become more receptive to information from other professionals.

The Freedom Program provides participants with practical effective stress management techniques. especially useful for people dealing with depression, suicidal tendencies and depression, creating a shift in outlook and future life choices.



Re-Cover International LTD tracks the development and results of the participants in our programs by using pre and post-course assessments of individuals evaluating different layers of their existence. This is done to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of our program, leaving us with concrete and measurable results for each individual who embarks upon the process.

In order to track the evolution of the physical condition of the regular practitioners of the Freedom Program, we have designed a medical questionnaire where we track the reduction in the intake of medication by the inmates and where we observe their vital medical status. One of the primary improvements we have observed has been a reduction in the use of sleeping aid medication. This alone creates an overwhelmingly positive effect on the mind of an individual, making him or her more balanced, focused and receptive to education. We offer a long-lasting observation service aiming to measure how the participants’ recidivism rate drops. This has only been possible to execute with the invaluable cooperation of local authorities and parole officers.


*All participant information is handled in strict confidentiality under our leading Medical Profession Thomas Fredrikson.
